[mythtv] Transcoding question.

Well, I have now learned that I can edit the jobqueue table to get the result
I want, but it doesn't seem like the JobsRunOnRecordHost setting does what is
says. I repeatedly get the wrong host whether this is set to 1 or 0.... I
assume it should be set to 1?
Either playbackinfo->hostname must point to the wrong host or somewhere I
can't quite find does something it shouldn't....
Can anyone confirm or deny this? Should I rather make a ticket?
