f*cking thunderbird just quit on me right in the middle of writing the 
previous incarnation of this message.

imho, all of the people writing these myth->dvd scripts should get 
together and standardize on things.

On that note, here's how I envision things going re nuvexport.  First, 
if I can ever get a way to automate nuv->avi, nuvexport will export all 
of its transcodes to a central location (preferably something in the 
mythvideo tree).  Going to avi is important because it'll give us access 
to transode and its ability to export pretty much any format we want to. 
  The database-driven mode would let transcodes be queued up from 
command line, mythweb or mythtv itself.

Then, comes the separate suite of dvd menuifying scripts.  These would 
scan the mythvideo tree, along with the standard mythtv data tree (for 
those of you lucky ones with the pvr-x50 cards), searching for any valid 
dvd-friendly mpeg files.  Next, of course, is the hard part of figuring 
out the descriptive data, but that shouldn't be too bad if nuvexport (or 
other exporters) are smart enough to port myth's meta data into the mpeg 
files.  There should also be an option for hand-editing descriptive info 
the menus, too, and probably something for picking out which frame to 
use for the preview image.

Anyway, just my thoughts on the subject.  I'm happy to help with 
wherever I can through nuvexport.
