SageTV 7 and h.264 transcoding

Since upgrading to SageTV 7 I've been having issues with my custom transcode job for my Zune HD. It worked fine in SageTV 6.x but fails immediately when starting in SageTV 7. So today I took a look at the configuration file and fixed the problem but I'm wondering what happened. My custom transcode job use to look like this.
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-16\:9=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=h264;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=272;arn\=16;ard\=9;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-2.35\:1=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=h264;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=204;arn\=2.35;ard\=1;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-4\:3=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=h264;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=368;arn\=4;ard\=3;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-720p=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=h264;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=1280;h\=720;arn\=16;ard\=9;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
Now it looks like this.
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-16\:9=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=mpeg4;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=272;arn\=16;ard\=9;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-2.35\:1=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=mpeg4;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=204;arn\=2.35;ard\=1;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-4\:3=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=mpeg4;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=480;h\=368;arn\=4;ard\=3;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
transcoder/formats/Zune\ HD-720p=f\=mp4;MCompressionDetails\=-deinterlace;[bf\=vid;f\=mpeg4;br\=768000;fps\=29.97;w\=1280;h\=720;arn\=16;ard\=9;][bf\=aud;f\=aac;sr\=48000;ch\=2;br\=152000;]
As you can see from the highlighted area, all I've done is change the video format from h.264 to MPEG4. After that, it transcodes perfectly. So, has h.264 transcoding been removed from SageTV, is it a broken feature, or is my install broken?
