Not a direct answer, but it sounds like you have a situation like I  
did a year ago when I was using a Plextor, which produced MPEG-4  
recordings - I couldn't watch the Plextor recordings  on an MVP  
without transcoding to MPEG-2 first.

My understanding is that the latest firmware for the MVP, used with  
Myth 0.20, can deal with MPEG-4 recordings by using VLC.

So maybe you can get around even having to do what you're talking about.
