Looks very promising. I especially like that it can handle MPEG4s as well. I
would like to try it this weekend.
Some questions:
- Can it reduce the size of recordings, if they are too large ? Does it use
mythtranscode or tcrequant for that ?
- Is the new archive format playable ? (Currently I archive with the nuv+sql
option from nuvexport which is playable on both Linux and Windows. But that
method breaks when the database structure change...)
- I guess the conversion takes place in the background, like with mythburn.
Can you confirm that ?

Best regards
