If I were to setup a profile like that....wouldn't MythTV still export an
NUV file? I was under the impression that these files were of a different
format....and that nuvexport converted them to MPG.
If I can go straight to MPG.....then that's a MUCH better option for me. I
don't really care how big the file is....LoL Got anymore info on this for
I'll fart around with it in Myth and see what I can come up with....

If you have a PVR-250, why do you need nuvexport? Can't you just set up
your profile to record 480x480 at 2500bps MPEG-2 w/44.1 kHz audio? Unless you
want to cut the commercials out; then you need nuvexport, but I don't know
if you can do that yet without reencoding... code has been going into CVS
lately to support MPEG-1/2 cutting without reencoding, but I haven't really
been tracking it, since I haven't installed my M-179s yet :-)
