Mythbackend logs are fine (I get plenty of data when mythbackend is actually running).  I wouldn't expect to have anything in mythbackend.log for the failed stuff that I tried using just mythjobqueue because the point of the exercise was to try having my jobs done without having mythbackend running.  Now, why mythtranscode.log is blank is a bit perplexing to me.
