No, just some stuff about mythtranscode not properly handling 5.1
sound, some people saying the code was old and they never used it, and
others discussing using other programs to shrink the files.

Luckily it was just one news broadcast, so I deleted and turned off transcoding.

Still I'd love to find out what people are doing to shrink their Mpeg
2 files down. I've got 1.5 TB of free space so I can wait, but I'd
love to hear how the list is handling MPEG2 with 5.1 sound. Will make
saving some newer series much easier. :-)

Of course with TB drives less than $90 maybe some people are just
expanding rather than transcoding.
