[mythtv-users] How to enable manual transcode?

To do manual transcoding do I have to startup a transcode daemon or something?  
The reason I ask is because when I go to rip a DVD for the first time after a 
reboot I usually get an error about the transcode daemon not running and to 
hit some key (I forget which) and then to try again.  Usually when I try 
again it works.

So anyhow back to  my problem.  While watching a recording I hit "menu" and 
the second option down is "begin transcoding".  I select that and it then 
changes to "stop recording" like it's now transcoding.  I left it for over 
24hours on a 1 hour recording and nothing happened.  If I go back and select 
stop transcoding it says "stopping transcoding" yet the menu never changes 
from having an option of "stop transcoding" like it's stuck in that state.

I'm running myth 0.15 on a 2.4Ghz celeron capturing with a pvr-250 and 350.  
Playback is on an nvidia mx440.
