To be honest, it's not so much the price point as the fact that I
bought a slim case because I thought it would work well in my living
room... only to find out that it is *loud*... hence the MediaMVP. The
slim case only houses half-height PCI cards, and I'm *way* too nervous
about moving a brand new motherboard to a new case... so I'm kinda stuck
with the TV tuner I have.

If, by "Jim", you mean me (and not some wise, all-powerful MythTV
developer) then... yeah! I'm all over it! Sorta. Just, please, someone
point me in the right direction and I'll code it up. Frankly, I would
think that you would want the ability to add arbitrary encoder modules...
*.so files that export a user-readable name and some GUI option tweaks.
Then it would be easier to add more in the future, in case someone has
their own favorite.
Given the $86 cost for a MediaMVP, I would think that quite a few people
would be very interested in recording to a compatible format regardless
of whether or not their grabber has an encoder.
[BTW: "Gaa!" How do you configure the mailing list to only send you some
threads (or configure gmail to direct mailing list traffic to another
folder)? So *much* stuff started flowing in that I changed my preferences
and missed the back half of this thread... hence the hand-tweaked post as a
response to a previous message.]
