[mythtv-users] Is there a good guide on recording profiles somewhere?

Hey all, 
     I'm getting ever so close to being able to say "Done!" and
replace my Tivo with my MythTV box. One thing I've Googled for, but I
must not be looking for the right thing, is configuration examples of
recording profiles. Specifically I'm looking for ideas on setting up
the different recording profiles for use with a PVR-350. Right now
they're on the default, and the resulting files are a little large,
but space isn't a problem yet.

     Ultimately I'd really like to have a low quality setting that
uses 1 GB per hour or less, and a higher quality setting that uses 2
GB per hour or whatever people recommend.

     One other thing to ask is does anyone have any idea what'd make
the screen display in mythfrontend look overly pink? If I transcode a
recorded show and watch it elsewhere it looks fine, and when I see the
little preview screens in mythfrontend the recordings look fine. It's
just when I try to view a recording (or live TV) that everything turns
a shade of pink. It's not the tuner type problem I was experiencing

     Finally - I want to send a HUGE thank you to Michael for the help
with the new tuner on my PVR-350 card. I figured out how to patch &
compile everything, and other than the things listed above everything
is working great. Thanks!
