[mythtv-users] Converting nuv to avi to play on windows

I have found that blackbox serves my purpose much better than KDE.  From
a WM boot time stand point, balckbox is up and ready before KDE and even
display the starting up splash screen.

On a performance level, I've found blackbox to work much better when
doing multiple encode/decodes.  My box has two tuners so I can record 2
things at once, or watch 1 thing and record another.  With KDE I had
video/audio sync problems when recording and watching live tv.  I don't
have those problems with blackbox.

Please note that some distros (mandrake) do funny things. I've followed 
the How-To instructions and they worked perfectly for KDE.  But if I use

the mandrake packages for blackbox or icewm, the screen still goes blank

after 15 minutes.

Off Topic, I'm not sure if it really helps using a lighter weight window

manger package on Mandrake, becuase it seem liked Mandrake still loads a

lot of the stuff for compatablity and the memory usuage wasn't much
