I'd also like to see something along these lines. My thought would be  
to add something to the playlist menu like "Burn to DVD" which would  
launch mytharchive with the playlist programs and a bunch of  
preselects for theme, sound, requants and whatever. Probably the  
preselects would be managed in mytharchive itself but I haven't  
looked through how it's implemented to see if that's easy or  

Paul, if you're listening, are you favourable to such an idea? I have  
some free time coming up so I could do the implementation.

This would work great for my sisters who are always out of town when  
they have the free time to watch the stuff they've recorded. They  
don't care about all this fine-grained control of how the disc is  
prepared. They just want to drop two hours of mysteries onto a DVD  
which they can take away and watch later.
