After my attempt at archive/burning a dvd from a recording, I looked at 
the log and found that this command errored

 ffmpeg -threads 2 -v 1 -i "/home/madolf/mythtv/temp/work/1/newfile.mpg" 
-r ntsc -target dvd -b 4771k -s 720x480 -acodec copy -copyts -aspect 
16:9 "/home/madolf/mythtv/temp/work/1/newfile2.mpg" -map 0:0 -map 0:1

I entered the command manually in a terminal and got the following 
output and error.

The log also said the the encode profile was from
