(A) Had the same problem here. I had this ticked:
Frontend setup|TV Settings|General|(page 3)|Run transcoder, but it did not
(B) But ticking:
Frontend setup|TV Settings|Recording profiles|Hardware DVB
Encoders|Default|Enable auto-transcode after recording
did then auto-transcode.
Then I unticked (A) Frontend setup|TV Settings|General|(page 3)|Run
transcoder, does still auto-transcode.
Setting (B) seems to set the flag in MythWeb to default to auto-transcoding.
For most programs I don't want that, and I'll tick the MythWeb
auto-transcode box when required.
So, in short, it seems setting (B) is needed for auto-transcode to actually
work, and (A) is optional for setting when you want it.
