I have been told you should export them with nuvexport. Apparently they 
are mpeg2 files but arranged as a TS, or transport stream.   There may 
be other utilities also that can convert TS to DVD compatible format.

I have had trouble with audio sync when exporting files recorded by my 
DVB-T card, but that was back when they contained a lot of errors and 
corruptions due to a system hardware problem.   I mean to try again, now 
I have built a separate dedicated myth box that produces clean nuv files.  

I am still learning too....
