I've got a couple of avi and mpeg files in /media/video I've set the video path
to /media/video but mythtv doesn't show the files in the 'watch a recording' menu.
I guess they need to be added to the database ?

Another problem: mythmusic won't compile because of a missing qarray.h , should
this be included in qt3 because it only seems available in qt3-embedded.
