Actually, this sounds like what I AM looking for! I want a Myth file
with MPEG2 & MP3 - I just want it to use up less space than the
default recording size that I get off DVB-T capture.

FYI, after issuing the mysql update I set up a MPEG2 --> MPEG2
transcode rule but they are all failing with an error according to the
job status screen. I will need to take a look at the log files to see
what the problem is.
