Wow, that sounds like a lot of work. I record from my PVR 350 in mpeg2, 
edit the cutpoints,
and tell mythburn to do it's thing via the web interface. 45 minutes 
later I've got a nice DVD.

This is one of the things holding me back from transcoding to mpeg4. 
There seem to be a lot
more steps when your recordings are in mpeg4.
