You run mythtvburn from mythweb, and it has a pretty
easy-to-use UI. It allows you to save multiple shows to a DVD
with a menu that selects which show, and then chapters within
that show. One "nice to have" feature that's missing is that it
doesn't cut commercials.

I haven't tried the others, but I belive nuvexport _does_ cut
commercials.  It's a command-line program, and I don't know if
it does multiples shows per DVD with title menus.
