You can do all this with MythTV (as well as some others, like Plex, etc.) There are hundreds (probably thousands) of forum posts, HOWTOs, etc. about transcoding recordings from MPEG2 to MPEG4 online. Just hit up a search engine with something like 'mythtv transcode hdhomerun' or something similar and you should find plenty of information to keep you busy for a while ;)
