Whooops... I didn't mean to imply that I was working with files created
from a pvr-250.  The mkdvd stuff was working with a bunch of video that
I had from "other" sources.

Like others have said, if you're capturing from a pvr-*50 card then you
can get video that ready for a DVD player and you don't have to do any
transcoding.  So creating a DVD from that should be a snap.
