I've tried it with both HDTV programs that were transcoded down and SDTV 
programs from a PVR-250.  In all cases, the files are transcoded to 
MPEG4 files and sometimes need to have the resolution changed. 
Initially the sync is fine, but it gradually gets worse.  I've tried it 
with creating ISO files and also burning DVDs.  The burnt DVDs don't 
play in my Sony standalone player, or a variety of laptops I've tried it on.

So, to clarify, have people been able to transcode HDTV down to DVD 
quality and cut commercials then burn it to a nice DVD with mythburn?
