Mythvideo DVD rip directory ignores database/gui settings

Description

The temporary directory for ripped dvd files before transcoding is set by the GUI, and stored in the database under settings -> DVDRipLocation. The Gui seems to set this value succesfully, but during transcoding, the mtd log ALWAYS show

"transcode command will be: 'transcode -i /var/lib/mythdvd/temp....."

I found this as my root directory doesn't have 5 GB of free space, and so all transcodes fail with out of space on the root drive.

From some testing here, the temp rip directory is pulled in at mtd startup time. If you change the working directory in the GUI, you will need to restart MTD for it to pick it up. Otherwise, changing the working dir works OK here. If you are running something like mythbuntu, mtd is started for you at boot time, so you can either manually restart it, or reboot.
