I thought recordings made with a DVB-T card were just plain old 
MPEG-2... if that's the case, you shouldn't need to do anything to 
them; if you want them to work "out of the box" on a Windows machine, 
just rename them from .nuv to .mpg.  If you want to transcode to a 
smaller format (i.e., DivX/Xvid), you could use any transcoding tool of 
your choice (mencoder, transcode, TMPGenc, etc...)

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong...
