Well...like I said, I haven't used mytharchive at all. I wasn't aware
you could configure it to use projectx...interesting. I guess what
you're telling me is that, as of this point, mytharchive has just as
much trouble dealing with less-than-perfect DVB as everything else.
In any case, I really don't want to do those conversions on either my
frontend (I don't want to tie up it's cpu and is actually doesn't have
a DVD burner at this point anyway) or my backend (which is busy enough
recording and commflagging).
