Maybe I'm missing the point or maybe the other replies had this (I
didn't see it) but isn't there a 'trancode to ipod' in the mythtv that
you can then just point itunes to your mythtv IP and then it'll show up
in itunes as a video podcast, updated when mythtv records.  

I belive the URL is http://[mythtv ip]/ipodfeed/feed.php

Course, this may need an extra module installed to have it all
available.  Works great though.
