[mythtv-users] make a copy of .nuv as .mpg

OK, I am starting to freak out.
I have a PVR-350, so I want to copy my recorded shows (.nuv) to .mpg so
that I can watch the shows from a Windows client on the network.
Sounds easy, right? Oh how I wish!
I guess I am just being greedy, but I do not want to mv or rename the
files, I just want to make a new copy of them with the .mpg extension
and place them in an already Samba shared directory.
cp /storage/TV/recording/*.nuv /storage/Videos/*.mpg
and I am getting this error message:
cp: `/storage/Videos/*.mpg': specified destination directory does not exist
But /storage/Videos DOES exist!!!
I know that this has to be a wicked easy thing to do, but I am having a
really rough time of it...and I am even embarrassed to be asking the
question, as I have 3+ years experience with Linux.
Is it the wildcard * that is screwing me up here?
The ultimate goal is to drop the statement into a cron job and have it
execute in the early morning hours.
I will then have the ability to watch/manage the recordings thru MythTV
(as .nuv files) or watch/manage them out on the network as .mpg.
