For those of us who use BTV's xml files this would be a boon.
Let VideoReDo sit in the system try waiting for new xml files to be created. When a new one has been completed, automaticaly open it and save the commercial free version of the MPEG to a pre-defined directory and then optionally kick off a batch file that can DivX compress the new MPEG if you have DivX Pro or Dr. Divx on yous system. Xvid is also an option.

If you have some basic programming skills you can do this with the current beta. VideoReDo is COM enabled which lets it be controlled via an external scripting language. COM was introduced in beta build #224 and somewhat improved in beta build #225. While the documentation on the COM interface won't be completed until the next maintenance release, you can see an example of it by looking at the vp.vbs file in VideoReDo program folder.
This is a simple windows shell script that processes the batch commands. It would not be difficult to create a new script that wakes up once a minute, checks for a chapter.XML file in your BTV folder, launches VideoReDo, and when VideoReDo is finished, launches the Divx encoder.
Are there any windows shell script programmers out there?

You mean like the script host type VBS scripting? Yeah I have done some.

Exactly, take at look at the script in Build 225. You'll need to add logic to detect the creation of the .xml file, but that shouldn't be too hard. :)
