[mythtv-users] Option to save in DVR-MS format

Wouldn't want to start a flame war, but I'm moving to MythTV from an MCE environment BECAUSE of the MS-DVR format.  After a year of searching, I have yet to find any tools that will let me edit and burn video in that format or convert reliably to a format I can work with, and MCE has even made my usual video tools (WinTV2000, Roxio 7.5 and 8.0, etc) fail when trying to use the PVR-150 MCE that came in the box.

If this option IS added to MythTV, please comment the code well so that I can remove it from what I run on my box.
