[mythtv-users] Script to create symlinks from numeric to human

I've tried to execute Dale's script but so far have not had success. I only receive this output:

Done RM
Skipping /video/recordings/1068_2004-11-29 10:00:00_2004-11-29 10:30:00.nuv
Skipping /video/recordings/1068_2004-11-30 10:00:00_2004-11-30 10:30:00.nuv

Then the script exits, returning me to the command prompt.  The "/video/recordings/pretty" dir is created but no files appear there. So, naturally I'm looking closely at the following line to determine why the script seems to exit here:

do { print "Skipping $mythpath/$ofn\n"; next } unless -e "$mythpath/$ofn";

I don't understand what the "unless" is checking for. Can anybody out there explain to me why my script exits without creating the "pretty" files? By the way, here is a partial directory listing for my /video/recordings directory:
