[mythtv-users] how to improve picture quality of exported DVDs?

Hi All,

I have a question about the first DVD I created of a recorded show.  The
picture quality of the program was noticably grainy.  Can someone point me
to any settings I can tweak to make the recordings look nicer?

The opening MythTV animation that I selected for the DVD looked awesome -
kind of a let down that the program didn't look quite as good.

I did notice the first recording I did was that there was a transcode job
failure (error code 247), which I have made changes, per the HOWTO, to
compensate for. I don't know if this contributed to the problem or not,
but I'm trying another recording tonight to see if it fares better with
this setting.

Thanks for any advice!
