Interesting - let me ask so I can paste the pieces together in my mind. 
  Are you saying this new feature drops in place between the mythtv back 
end and a client to transcode the video?  So, for example, an mvpmc.org 
capable MediaMVP box (which can not handle the high BW of HD TV) can be 
detected and supported by offering it programs that have been transcoded 
to NTSC like BW?

I have this set up several times over and have been wondering how to go 
about creating the Mythtv code to detect and support such clients!

Tell me how to test your code and I'll set up a test.
