I take your point.
I'm using 0.4.9-0.pre220.127.116.11plf (mandrake 10.1)- but it seems to lack
support for the -f dvd option
I have mythburn working in mythweb – which is a really nice alternative
(just watch out for the –z option for transcode in mythtvburn.sh and
scripts/extractthumbnail.sh that flips the menu-item).
