[mythtv-users] ConvertX SVHS input and Exporting

Hello all. Finally played with mythtv yesterday. Excellent, but now I
need a new hard drive (or two).
I do have a few things I can't figure out, however. How do I choose
svhs input for the ConvertX? I've set default input to svhs in
mythsetup->capture cards->go7007, and given Composite a lower priority
than S-Video in mythsetup->input connections, but it still only records
Also, how does one go about exporting .nuv for backup on removable
media? I can't play .nuv directly with mplayer (unsure if this is an
amd64 issue), and the naming is unfriendly. Is it possible to re-encode
to a .avi, rename and still maintain the link into the media browser?
What would be really nice is to have the myth data sitting in the
transport header (ie ogg fields or similar) so that archived myth
recordings could be identified and external myth recordings could be
integrated (ie this file was dl'd and it's this program, which is
scheduled, but I now have this episode, so no need to record this
episode). Combine that with offline archive knowledge and it would not
record an episode which is already recorded, regardless of where it
actually is (ie recording metadata kept).
Yeah, I can hear it now... 'He just runs it yesterday and already he
wants a CMS'. heh. Thanks,
