You need to have the myth transcode daemon (mtd) running. You can start 
it from the commmand line after myth is running but its probably better 
to start it as a daemon before hand. Try running 'mtd --daemon' as root 
and then restart the backend and frontend both and you should be able to 
rip to lower quality settings.
