[mythtv-users] Burning DVDs from mpeg2/nuv

All I do is tell myth to use the DVD Special 2 (or something like that) 
encoder and set a highish bit rate.  I take the nuv file and directly 
feed it into Nero Vision Express.  I don't lose any quality in 
re-encoding as it's already in mpeg2 format needed for DVD.  Don't put 
in any CC or other VBI data, Nero doesn't seem to like that too much.

It's quite simple.  I create all the menus I want within Nero.

I'm all for Linux, but sometimes it's the tool that's more important 
than the OS for a specific job.
