I believe that is the recomended way now. I think they are dropping PS 
support in myth, so yes, try using TS.

You would get poorer quality though and I don't know if Nero will accept 
MPEG4 (I don't use Nero)

Yes I quite like editing out the bits I don't want in Myth, very easy.

Yes.  This has been discussed here in the past.  I would really like to 
somehow just extract the MPEG2 from the TS stream without going through 
a reconversion.  I really don't know enough about it all yet though.
