[mythtv] mtd daemon commands

	I'm working on a little bot that automagically transcodes my DVDs as  
soon as they are inserted, and then ejects then when its finished.  
I've got all the pieces working but I've noticed some differences in  
the commands I use to kick off mtd/transcode compared to the myth  
frontend. For example, normally to kick off the transcode, I connect  
to port 2442, send the media command to see what was inserted then  
send a 'job dvd 1 1 -1 0 -1 <filename>' but I've noticed myth sending  
various numbers for the first digit following the 'dvd' command. Does  
anyone have documentation on what these numbers relate to or how to  
derive what number to send? I'm looking for 100%/DVD quality rips.  
Basically I'm using myth as a DVD jukebox.

	I'm heading to the source next, but was hoping somebody would be able  
to point me to some wiki that explains these arguments.


Merry Christmas (or Happy December 25th, take your pick).
