i'm not sure i understand what you want... 
if you want to create an 'asx' file ..asx is a text file... so you
probably want to create the wmv and/or asf files... it's not possible
with mencoder ( only avi output).

if you want to save the from-internet-streamed asx to your hardix, you
can try mplayer -dumpstream

try mplayer -vo pcm -aofile outfile.wav myfile.asf... this will create a
wav file, and you can create the mp3 file from that file with an mp3
encoder ( for example mp3 lame).

That's life for you, said McDunn.  Someone always waiting for someone 
who never comes home.  Always someone loving something more than that 
thing loves them.  And after awhile you want to destroy whatever 
that thing is, so it can't hurt you no more.
