[mythtv-users] Convert nuv to mpg

I'm looking for a command to convert an nuv file to an mpg file suitable 
for creating a DVD. From what I've seen, nuvexport seems to be the 
popular choice. However, I've not had luck installing nuvexport because 
of dependencies and it seems nuvexport is an interactive command. I 
would like a command I could stick in a script. From what I've found, 
ffmpeg and transcode seem to be the programs to accomplish this. I tried 
'ffmpeg -formats' and the ffmpeg installed on my myth box does not 
support nuppelvideo. That would seem to leave transcode. I have not 
found a good tutorial on transcode and the options don't seem intuitive. 
(This is intended to show that I have made an effort to figure this out.)

Does anyone have an example or a pointer to an example of a 'transcode' 
command to convert a nuv file to an mpg file?
