I'm guessing you want a Linux solution, but here's a Windows one just
in case. I've only started playing with this this week but it appears
that a pretty easy solution would be to:

1) Copy recording to Windows machine
2) Use ProjectX on Windows to edit recording and transcode to .mp2 & .mpv.
3) Use a DVD author such as DVD Styler & import these 2 asset file to
make your DVD.

However, I think this all relies on the fact that I'm recording wit
DVB-T cards so I've already got MPEG2 to start with. In your case
you'd have to transcode the files out of MPEG4. You could do that with
nuvexport as step 0). Or you could use something like TMPGEnc or
IMTooMPEG (neither are free and not sure how much they like the MythTV
transcoded format). I think I've played with one of them and it does
work from memory.
