VLC does transcoding (stream in > re-encode) and write to disk amongst 
other things. I also got some (start time) scheduling happening from 
the command line but couldn't get it to stop at the time. Don't worry; 
it was just a Windows box with a single partition so I just let it 
fille the disk. :D

I'm keen to get MythTV happening, myself, but having no experience with 
it I'm not sure whether it will do what you want with the TransACT box. 
Someone has a MythTV box in my TransACT cubicle at the moment so I'll 
check it out with them tomorrow and let you know if you want.
