[mythtv-users] MythArchive fails during Menu creation

I used to create lots of DVD images but haven't done so recently;  a 
library of DVDs takes up too much space.  But I just tried again and it 
failed.  I was trying to convert from mythlink 'Videos' but it fails 
with Recordings too.

The theme, and the line numbers in mythburn.py, will be non-standard.

This is on my fc27 box running V30-Pre-11d42...  mythburn.py line 1 is:

#! /usr/bin/python2

Googling 'cannot write mode RGBA as JPEG' gets lots of hits, which I 
haven't yet studied.  Has anyone else?
