I just got my pvr250 up and running again and was wondering what 
people use for fast and efficient transcoding ?  The native format is 
quite large and I want to convert the file into xvid or divx for 
later viewing, but I dont want to reduce the quality too 
much.  Anyone doing anything similar, and if so what program are you 
using with what options ?

% tcprobe -i daily-26.mpg
[tcprobe] MPEG program stream (PS)
[tcprobe] summary for daily-26.mpg, (*) = not default, 0 = not detected
import frame size: -g 720x480 [720x576] (*)

        frame rate: -f 29.970 [25.000] frc=4 (*)
