That's a mythbackend.log. You need to look at mythtranscode.log.
Note, also, that depending on when you upgraded and whether your distro
had properly set up logging (as there were some permissions issues with
syslog logging in Ubuntu until recently), you may have a broken syslog
Where you should likely be using "Simple rsyslog Configuration" and not
"Templated Logging to local7 Facility". And the "commands to
create/update the initial log files" can be used to fix any permissions
