Peter, I just tried this out, looks like a minor configuration issue, though
I am not sure what and where to change.

I ran the install-job-number piece.
Then in Myth frontend I choose Job Options, Transacode for the PSP.

The mythbackend.log shows this:
2006-12-20 13:52:33.735 JobQueue: Started "Transcode for PSP" for "Kim
Possible" recorded from channel 1051 at Wed Dec 20 12:13:00 2006

-rw-r--r--  1 mythtv mythtv  410 2006-12-17 20:17 mysql.out

Not sure what I need to change.  It appears myth is looking for the
pdatranscode.pl script to be in the tmp directory instead of where it was
installed.  Should the job be copying itself to that directory?
