Ok. let's call 'hostile witness' here.

First, why would you need myth to record? Couldn't you use any other 
programme that grabs info from the PVR card? Oh heck why not do:
~> cat /dev/video0 > myfile.mpg
In other words: what's the added value of myth?

Second, why don't you use myths editiing and transcoding tools? if you 
are only editing out commercials or other light editing work, Myth, 
together with the nuvextract programme, is all you need.
