I have been told you should export them with nuvexport. Apparently they

I read on dsmyth's webpage that dsmyth is not able of handling MPEG2 as PS,
but it was not clear if it could handle TS. Maybe I should try TS.
I seem to manage to export with nuvexport, so that path should be possible.
I wonder if transcoding with MythTV would solve the problem too. If I can
make Nero read the MPEG4s generated by MythTV, then I would have a nice path
to do the job. MythTV is a much nicer cut-list editor than Nero and the
transcoding would cut the movie, so there would be less to do in Nero.
But both nuvexport and transcoding with Myth would cause an additional
transcoding which will degrade the quality a little...
