In any case, the transcode job that myth does in mpeg4 would probably take all day if you left it to the atom processor.  You're going to have to defer your jobs to a different myth back/front end, especially for high def content.

I'm guessing he means he does a /lossless/ MPEG-2->MPEG-2 transcode with 
mythtranscode to remove commercials, then he transcodes with avidemux.
