Hi there,

I'm having some trouble creating the DVD image to be burned... The
error is quite odd. I found somebody complaining of the same in one of
the mysettopbox threads, but no solution to the problem. Here's the
log output:

MythTV BurnDVD stopped due to error
Sent UDP/XML packet to IP and port: 6948

I'm really not sure why it's looking for .nuv files in there -
/incoming is my all purpose dump directory and not where myth's
recordings are stored. The script is quite clear about this however,
since it demuxes the original.

Any ideas?
