[mythtv-users] Capture size for faster re-encoding

I read on the page for MythArchive that in order to re-encode into DVD
compliant MPEG2 faster, one should set the capture size to one of these

"For NTSC countries they are 720x480, 704x480, 352x480 and 352x240".

So, I went into mythfrontend -> Utilities / Setup -> Setup -> TV
Settings -> Recording -> MPEG2 Encoders (PVR-250, PVR-350) -> Default
and on the second screen changed the numbers to 352 x 480.

But the finished recordings are still 480x480. Why is that? The
recordings do use the default profile...
