I tried both ProjectX and MythBurn (including just running mythtvburn.sh 
script) and I have the same problem: dvdauthor produces nothing in AUDIO 
directory, and as result no sound. The xyz.mpg (above) is absolutely 
fine, that is with sound and video and excellent quality. Mythtvburn is 
more complex sequence (since it generates XML for dvdauthor that 
includes menus, etc) - but the actual file after "bringing the streams 
back together" that goes into dvdauthor has all the sounds as well.

I have FC4, ProjectX 0.82, dvdauthor 0.6.11
mjpegtools mplex-2 version 1.6.3-rc1 (2.2.3)

I think I am so-so close, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!
