Thanks for the help.

I'm not trying to record/burn to a DVD.  I want to take a single recording, create the cutlist (which I've done and verified when I view the recording in MythTV) and then export, whilst retaining the cutlist.

Have I misunderstood the capability of MythArchive?  Will MythArchive take a recording and cutlist and write out a file that is smaller (with the cutlist bits removed)?  All I seem to get is the original sized recording as MPG, a PNG file and and XML file.

Don't know how to transcode outside of MythTV at all.  If I can use a command line version to create my reduced/trimmed recordings that would be great!
