[mythtv-users] Lossless .nuv conversion

I have a PVR-250 on my MythTV setup and have MythTV automatically 
re-encode most programs to MPEG-4.

I would like to be able to convert the .nuv file to an MPEG-4 file that 
any standard MPEG-4 player could play.  I do not want to re-encode it, 
which would of course reduce the quality by introducing yet another 
lossy compression generation into the mix.

It seems that most of the common .nuv conversion tools -- nuvexport and 
mythtranscode at least -- are based around the idea that people will be 
wanting to re-encode their data.  I don't want to do that.

What options might I have here?  And would these options also work for 
the MPEG-2 data that I have that hasn't been re-encoded?  (That is, 
could I extract the MPEG-2 stream?)
