I think Myth would need another compression algorithm better suited to 
security recordings first. Something that compresses to small filesizes 
and has fairly low cpu overhead, where the tradeoff is quality. I've 
been thinking up several different possibilities with myth and this one 
came up, but I want to get my box playing tv correctly first before I 
start expanding it to other purposes :-).
