I don't think many users create DVD any more they are so last century 
now :) Most of my old DVD's are slowly degrading so bad they are 
unusable. I would remove the DVD creation part and add methods to move 
recordings into the video library maintaining as much metadata as 
possible (something that should be built in to MythTV IMHO) and also to 
move/backup recordings and videos  to some separate storage like a NAS 
again maintaining the metadata so they can easily be recovered.
