Yeah.  Basically with yours you can do the same as:

ls /path/to/view/directory | awk '{split($0,a,"-"); print a[1]}' | sort 

with a simple:

ls /path/to/view

which is much easier to type (and remember ;).  I guess there's always:

mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg -e 'select distinct(title) from recorded'
