After years of trying to find a quick and easy way to convert divx movies to DVD I have found the best (and most user friendly) way of doing it.
The quality is far better than Nero on windows and a lot faster than tmpeng (it also seems better quality).
See the homepage - http://kmpg2.sourceforge.net/view.php/page/Voorpagina.
Install / usage guide is here - http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=29587
One thing to watch is that when you start the conversion it seems to do nothing for about 10 mins (also when viewing a preview), it is actually doing stuff and providing you have selected to view the progress you should see the film start (this is also when the film is being converted). You can check it is working by typing # ps aux.
Hope this helps someone, I have tried to use many tools in Linux to convert divx movies back to dvd and there has always been at least one problem (i.e sound sync,etc)
