 	I realize that it's a bit premature, but might I suggest two types 
of DVD burning:  One that actually authors a standards-compliant DVD 
(difficult), and one that simply exports the .nuv and an .sql stub file 
onto a DVD that's easily played from within mythtv (easier).  I generally 
use nuvexport in that mode (NUV/SQL) to export/import recorded shows when 
I'm out of disk space.  Don't lose anything in the database that way.

Just a though...
