I use a PVR-250 and recent cvs of mythtv and want to use mythtranscode to reencode the files to drop the commercials using the cutlist. I see from the source that hardware MPEG is not going to work now.  

1.)   I was wondering if it will be possible one day.  Is there alot of code involved or can it be hacked together form other parts of the source.  I could re-encode the the to software mpeg4 but space is not an issue and mpeg2 high bit rate converts nice to svcd and vcd.

2.)   I noticed something that looked odd when I tried the mythtranscode command.  Is this the way it is suppose to be or a bug

mythtranscode -p transcode -c 1047 -s 20030715110000

mythtranscode -p transcode -c 1047 -s 2003-07-15-11-00-00

works some what.  I get the Unknown video codec: Hardware MJPEG  error as expected
