[mythtv-users] burning MythTV shows on DVD

I burnt a show I recorded in MythTV onto a DVD+RW using some script I
found when I was googling the subject... goes a little something like

mkfifo aud0
mkfifo vid0
mkfifo dvdmpg
mpeg2desc -a0 < $1 > aud0 &
mpeg2desc -v0 < $1 > vid0 &
mplex -f 8 -V -o dvdmpg aud0 vid0 &
dvdauthor -o $2 -f dvdmpg
dvdauthor -o $2 -T
mkisofs -dvd-video -o "$2.iso" $2
growisofs -Z "/dev/dvd=$2.iso"

and wow, that was easy and worked perfect.  But then when I was
replaying it, the audio is several seconds behind the video, it seemed
to be pretty close in the beginning and progressively got worse...  Does
anyone see anything wrong with that method or have a better way to go
about burning to DVD?
