One more question.  Did you modify the "Transcoder command" setting in
mythtv-setup?  If you did, you need to setup a proper command line to pass
in all the normal values that the JobQueue passes to mythtranscode.

That would mean having a "Transcoder command" something like these:

    /usr/local/bin/mythtranscode -j %JOBID% -V %VERBOSELEVEL% -p autodetect

    /usr/local/bin/mythtranscode -c %CHANID% -s %STARTTIME% -V %VERBOSELEVEL% -p autodetect

If you leave this field blank or set it to "mythtranscode", then the
JobQueue will generate the proper command line itself.
