It may be something about the recording that mytharchive doesn't like. 
I've not tried burning any DVDs yet, but I've certainly had several 
recordings that play fine in Myth but which nuvexport doesn't "like" (it 
either errors out or slows down to sub 0.1 frames per second when other 
recordings of same program on same channel work fine). As burning DVDs 
usually involves transcoding, I guess the same thing could apply. I 
don't have a solution though, or any suggestions on how to properly 
diagnose this.
