m2t is the original files output of Kaffeine.
Normaly I using Kaffeine to record the TV programs (DVB-T).
Next, I see the recorded program, on my TV using an USB Key and the USB input of my DVD player.

For do this I using the Avidemux (GTK+) for convert file from .m2t to .mpeg but not only for this, for example I using Avidemux also for remove the advertising from my registration.
Below there is the explanations how to do this.

First install on UBUNTU (ver.10.04 - Lucid) the Avidemux, version GTK+, using UBUNTU SOFTWARE CENTER.
Second, it is very important configure Avidemux for convert properly .m2t file to .mpeg file for seeing it on TV.

VIDEO Configuration
MPEG-4 ASP (lavc)
and next, press:
and from the new window that appear select:
and select MPEG
see below

AUDIO Configuration:
Select: MP3 (lame)
and for get a good sync from audio to video select Ritardo and insert -600.
This configuration is properly for my DVD player that is: IRRADIO mod. DVX-121 PLUS.
It is possible that, the Ritardo time (-600), is not correct for your DVD player, in this case, try different values of Ritardo for choose the right value for your USB DVD Player.
See below.

Now chose:
Save Video
save your file with .avi extension (for example: name.avi)

This is all, good vision.
