Most people, especially the developers, use the PVR-xxx cards that have
built-in MPEG-2 encoders, so I wouldn't expect to see much work going in
to improving transcoding with a MPEG-4 source.
Of course, once Hauppauge or someone like them starts selling cards with
MPEG-4 encoders, we'll start to see a lot of attention paid to MPEG-4
