Try running mythburn.py from the command line to see what happens.  You need
to manually setup a mydata.xml file in <mytharchive-dir>/config.  Something
<!DOCTYPE mythburn>
    <job theme="MythCenter" >
            <file usecutlist="0" type="recording" encodingprofile="NONE"
filename="2030_20080206170000.mpg" />
            <file usecutlist="0" type="recording" encodingprofile="NONE"
filename="2030_20080207160000.mpg" />
            <file usecutlist="0" type="recording" encodingprofile="NONE"
filename="1030_20080207170000.mpg" />
        <options dvdrsize="4482" mediatype="0" erasedvdrw="0" createiso="1"
doburn="0" savefilename="STV-2.7.iso" />

And then run the mythburn script this way:
python /usr/share/mythtv/mytharchive/scripts/mythburn.py

And look for errors.
