Using mencoder with composite inputs

I'm posting my mencoder script for my own reference and also for anyone else who needs to make copies of their VHS tapes to divx.

mencoder tv:// -o /myth/video/motion/file.avi\
-tv driver=v4l2:input=1:alsa:amode=1:norm=0\
-ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4\
-oac mp3lame -lameopts vbr=2 q=0 mode=0:vol=-10\
-vf pp=al

I have an old Brooktree card. This was done under a MythTV setup.
