Hi Daniel,

I installed this patch set on my backend machine.  Compiles up and seems 
to run just fine.

Unfortunately, programs recorded with it in place are unplayable by 
Myth.  I get a:

avformat error: -1
Couldn't open decoder for: 

In the mythbackend log file.  This is with the latest CVS and with David 
Georges "avformat error" patch installed.  Without David's patch, the 
backend would just die.

The file DOES play using mplayer, so I am not sure why Myth has a problem.

I have tried several different recording, and I get the same result 
every time.
