[mythtv] Transcoding question.

I have recently looked over all the settings I can find in both mythtv-setup
and the general frontend editable settings to see how I could force only the
recording backend to process jobs since apparently nothing else works
presently. I though I had found it with the 'Run jobs only on original
recording host' checkmark in mythtv-setup, but it didn't seem to take hold?
Is transcoding not a job? If it is, does anyone have a clue why it doesn't
take hold? I usually have to schedule transcodings for when the other backend
is recording to get it to work right....
Do I need to edit all other backend on not 'Allow transcoding jobs' while I
focus on the jobs of a particular host or is there a better way?
I would be happy with jobs (i.e. transcoding) staying on the host where it was
recorded, but wouldn't mind if other hosts could do the job also. I just hope
someone out there have a more foolproof way of doing it than I have been able
to find. Often both backends record at the same time which makes scheduling
transcondings difficult the way I have it now.
I am up and running version 7041/7043.
