[mythtv] I'm exporting to DIVX no problem. I'm using a bitrate of 4500 and it looks great!

I've been wondering about this myself of late. However, there's one weird 
little problem that I keep having -- mplayer plays the video from a .nuv 
back too fast. The sound is fine (uncompressed PCM), but the video stream 
seems to be going a few fps too fast! I'm encoding video using hardware 
MJPEG with a Matrox G200 card.

I can kinda tweak it by passing "-fps 26.98" to mencoder, which doesn't 
touch the audio stream, but that still seems wrong to me.

Anyone else noticed this? 

BTW, it happens on two different machines, exactly the same way, and they 
have very different sound cards. Yes, mplayer does exactly the same thing.
