[mythtv-users] Transcoding HD-PVR Recordings

Hello all,

With the Fall TV season kicking in, and due to some changes with my
cable company since last season, I've been starting to use my HD-PVR
more often.  I'm looking for some suggestions on ways to transcode
these HD-PVR recordings both for playback on less powerful / non-VDPAU
systems (ie netbook, iPod, etc.) and for disk space saving /
archiving.  For my other recordings, which are from mostly an HDHR
with a few from a pcHD3000 as well, I am currently using 'nuvexport'.
However, this program / script does not seem to work for HD-PVR
recordings, at least not the version I am using.

I have been searching around for info both on the MythTV lists and the
web.  While I have found some info, most of it seems old / outdated
and/or incomplete.  I did find one script through my searching called
'mythnuv2mkv.sh', which I've used a couple of times and it seems to be
working OK.  However, I'm just wondering what other MythTV users are
doing.  If I can be so bold to ask that any suggestions include
details of command-line options, program settings, profiles, etc.
Ideally I'd like to use something that is freely available and
MythTV-aware (as in being able to handle cut-lists).

I am currently running MythTV version 0.23.1 from the ATrpms repo
under Fedora 13.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
