mythtranscode doesn't handle mpeg4 encoded files (such as from the go7007): "no more queue slots!"

Description

I'm using the current release of mythtv. mythtranscode handles many of my recordings (especially non-HDTV), but one non-HDTV source it hates is my go7007 device, which records to mpeg4.

Here's an example of how I call mythtranscode, plus the messages I see: mythtranscode -i mythtv-recording.nuv -o transcode-output.mpg --mpeg2 --showprogress 2008-01-09 15:19:03.710 Using runtime prefix = /usr 2008-01-09 15:19:03.839 New DB connection, total: 1 2008-01-09 15:19:03.843 Enabled verbose msgs: important 2008-01-09 15:19:03.845 New DB connection, total: 2 2008-01-09 15:19:04.360 No more queue slots! Command exited with non-zero status 255

You can't use --mpeg2 with a mpeg-4/.nuv file. mythtranscode can not currently transcode _to_ MPEG-2, it can perform a lossless MPEG-2 transcode, but it can not start with a .nuv and give you a .mpg file. Work is being done on this, but it is a ways off, it definitely won't be in SVN before 0.21. Take off the --mpeg2 off your command line and things may work better. There may be issues as noted in ticket #2854, but I haven't had time to look at that either yet. Closing this ticket as invalid.
