Did I miss something or has the option of transcoding from MPEG2 to 
MPEG2 been removed? I was going to configure a transcode option just for 
removing commercials, I wanted to keep it in mpeg2 format so I could 
burn it on a dvd easily. I thought I used to be able to modify the MPEG2 
(source format) and select the destination format of MPEG2. Last time I 
checked using cvs as about a week or two ago it only allowed me to 
change it to RTJPEG or MPEG4.
