Nowadays our growing child likes sesame street a bit more so I record Dutch sesame street from dvb-t. But I noticed those don't always play right on the Netgear EVA 8000HD. Most of the time audio wasn't playing. Audio played fine when viewing them with mplayer on a linux system. So I looked into conversion options and ended up with mencoder. The mencoder commandline I use to convert the program stream from dvbstream to a file playable by the netgear:
koos@thompson:/scratch/sesamstraat$ for file in *sesamstraat*mpg ; do mencoder $file -ofps 25 -of avi -oac mp3lame -ovc lavc -lavcopts vbitrate=1000:aspect=2 -lameopts abr:br=128 -o ${file%.mpg}.avi; done
Gives a good enough quality and reduces the size of the files to about a third.
