You can try:

Do it once then edit the /tmp/config/mydata.xml file replacing the file name

then execute

python /usr/share/mythtv/mytharchive/scripts/mythburn.py

from the /tmp/config folder

I do this all the time for making dvd compatible disks but not exports so
this may not work as
the actual program info may be in the xml file.
