Looked into it a bit more and I'm now pretty sure it's a Samba/kernel
thing, not the fault of MythDVD or transcode. If I'm understanding
things right, there's a 2G file size limit for Samba shares unless you
have the LFS patches applied to both the kernel and smbmount. So either
I need to find the LFS patch for my kernel (2.4.26), upgrade my old RH9
boxes, or split the video into segments...
