I  should have provided a few more details.  I don't have a HD display.  All
my viewing is done from SD tv's or a laptop over 802.11b so svcd is
acceptable to me, dvd would be just about right.  More is better but 720p is
overkill by a long shot.  I currently transcode to mpeg4 640x380 or so but
I'm tired of having to patch XBMC, change to avi, or be restricted to VLC (I
didn't care much for DSmyth).  It would also be easier to drop a recording
on a dvd or cd for thouse time's I want to share.
