[mythtv-users] Can't get MythArchive to work

I know this does not solve the problem for the show (or any other recorded
shows you have) you have now however to avoid the ffmpeg reencode step
(which takes forever) you need to setup mythTV to record at 720 X 480. This
is done in myth-setup. Don't worry this will not make the file size any
bigger and it does not appear to make the quality any worse either. This is
assuming that you are using a card that supports this resolution (hauppage
cards do). A second way to avoid this step is to select the option in
mytharchive to not reencode to standard dvd (I am not sure of the exact
wording of that check box). This will avoid the reencoding but it will
create a dvd that will not be watchable on all standalone dvd players.
