You can add your own encoding profiles to the config files if that helps.
The best way to do that would be to copy the existing ffmpeg_dvd_xxx.xml
files to ~/.mythtv/MythArchive/ and add your own encoding profiles using
the existing ones as a template, just make sure you give them new unique
names. You will then be able to choose the new encoding profiles in
Note: That location assumes the CONFIGDIR is set to the default of
~/.mythtv and may be different on your setup.
