Hi all -

I'm trying to burn a DVD using mytharchive and the "MythCenter - Autoplay"
DVD theme, which I've used successfully in the past.  However, now I'm
getting the following message:

I downloaded the most current mythplugins package (mythplugins-0.20a.tar.bz2)
from the mythtv.org Downloads page, and even went back a version (
mythplugins-0.19.tar.bz2), but neither of those packages contains the file
ntsc_blank.mpg.  I googled that file name, but again, no love.

I had a previous error on another filename, silence.mp2, but I was able to
find a sequence of commands to create one:

Anyone care to point me in the direction of the file ntsc_blank.mpg, or show
me how to create my own?  Thanks.
