I don¹t see that option in mythtv-setup. Under recording profiles for my
Firewire Input, I have Default, Live TV, High Quality and Low Quality.
However, it doesn¹t really let me select one of them. If I click on one it
just takes me to a settings pages with only two option: Name and Allow
automatic transcoding.

I am using the fixes/0.27 branch.
