You didn't mention your system specs; transcoding is pretty
CPU-intensive. Also, if there's anything else running on the system
(for example another recording using software encoding) then nuvexport
will get a lot less CPU (by design) because the commands it spawns run
at the lowest priority level.
I haven't ever tried converting to XviD before, but on my Athlon 2800
converting a one-hour recording to SVCD or DVD can take over an hour.
Back in the early days of nuvexport, it used to take about 8 hours to
convert a one-hour recording to SVCD on my Athlon 1.33 GHz machine.

Try using hdparm to get some sort of performance boost.
