1.) I'm not sure if that's possible.
2.) I'm not sure it has actually gotten around to transcoding anything
yet. I think it's just demuxing! And it's been going for 7 hours...
Here's the comand line it's using:
/usr/share/mythburn/mythtvburn.sh 'ntsc' 'grey.png' \
'menumusic.mp2' 'yes' 'no' 'no' 'bar.png' 'no' 'no' \
'no' '1170_20050819193000_20050819200000.nuv' \
'cut' > /usr/share/mythburn/temp/mythburn.log 2>&1 &
And here's the log:
MythBurn Script is running as user apache
Video format = ntsc
Background image = /usr/share/mythburn/images/backgrounds/grey.png
Background music = /usr/share/mythburn/music/menumusic.mp2
Make ISO image = yes
Burn to DVD-R = no
Delete VIDEO_TS = no
Highlight image = bar.png
Animated thumbnails = no
Chapter Submenus = no
Recode to AC3 = no

And those last two lines continue for the next 2.9M of the log file.
Has it even started transcoding the file to a higher resolution yet,
or is it just demuxing the video and audio into different files?
Is this normal?

That would certainly be nice. But I don't have that kind of CPU power.

Agreed. A PVR 350 with an extra transcoding chip would make
that card well worth the price. :)
