ok, I guess im not clear on how things are recorded.  so the pvr150
provides a mpeg2 stream which myth records.  What does the transcoder do
then, I have it checked off to transcode after shows record, and I have
all profiles set at mp4.  just changed them.

windows fe just watches recordings, and sometimes live tv.  tv works
fine, recordings always say no codec.
