That will help out, as will ProjectX.

Assuming your .nuv file came from a PVR you will need to demux it,  
remux it and the "author" the DVD. Depending on your Myth version  
Mythburn or Mytharchive will attempt to do this for you.

BTW - "nuv" is a container type, "mpeg" is a compression algorithm  
(or a set of them). Neither one is a "file" type, that's something  
different. No wonder I get confused.

But we know what you mean, you want to make a playable DVD from a  
Myth recording. :-)
