I have been lurking on this list for only a few days, but here's my 
2-pence worth:

As someone already said, this is already there.  But what I'd like to see 
is the ability to transcode a recorded programme into one of the other 
recording profiles - I know I can do this with the separate mythtranscode 
program, but can't see a way of doing it from the front end.
e.g. I record a show in top quality and watch it.  After I have finished 
watching it I decide that maybe a friend would be interested in the show, 
but it's going to be a while before I see that friend and I can't afford 
the drive space to keep it around, so I transcode it down to a lower 
quality so I can store it.

On a completely different point, I am running MythTV on an nVidia Geforce4 
graphics card - the card has both VGA and TV outputs and I'm using both of 
them under Xinerama.  Is it possible to get MythTV to sync with the vblank 
interval on the TV output?  Is it even possible if you're using both the 
VGA and TV outputs since as far as I can tell the nVidia driver only 
provides one device to poll for both cards?
