I successfully used the included TMPGEnc template to encode a downloaded AVI file of Futurama and after running rtvconvert on it, I successfully imported the new file into DVArchive and streamed it to a 5040. Although it's a time-consuming process even on my P4, it's a great step forward!
Using the same template (for those who don't have TMPGEnc, this template uses a default resolution of 720x480) and source file but changing the encode resolution to 480x480 also works, as does 352x480.
BUT, things get kinda squirrely after that :) Any attempt to stream multiple rtvconverted files in a row reboots the 5040. So, right now my DVArchive contains imports of a 720x480, a 480x480 and a 352x480 rtvconverted MPG file of the same TMPGEnc'd AVI file. If I stream one of those files, all is well. If I stop it and try to stream another rtvconverted file--and even if I try to play the same file a 2nd time--then my 5040 reboots. If I instead try to play back a "native" locally-recorded file on the 5040, that works fine, and also seems to "reset" the 5040 such that I can once again stream a single rtvconverted file.
In case it matters, I'm using TMPGEnc Plus 2.520.54.163 and I'm changing to DVArchive flags for each stream to reflect the appropriate Length, Quality and Media Type.
The thing I love most about deadlines is the wonderful WHOOSHing sound they make as they go past.
