One good thing about any2dvd is that it literally will take any
format/codec and make it into a dvd compatible file (any2vob) and
write a nice dvd out of it (any2dvd). With mpeg2 recordings this
ability to use a diverse variety of import files may not be so

Also it is commandline and can be scripted, which might make it easier
to fit in to myth's transcoding/user job structure. I am not sure if
devede can be, I have only used the gui.
