I have patched my local nuvexport that fills in the date of the
recording as a subtitle if the subtitle isn't there, instead of
'Untitled'.  I needed this so I could export more than one Next at CNN
episodes at a time. From your example above, it looks like you are
putting the channel, startime and endtime into the filename too. I
haven't seen a need for that myself, but I guess that could be done too.
I record lots of shows that don't have  subtitles, so this is quite necessary.

I also have two more modifications...one restores the space after the
minus sign between title and subtitle as it's supposed to be, and the
other adds a cmd arg to save the description of the show into a .txt
file so when I finally get mythburn going, I'll be all set. I used to
export the show to vcd, then export the nuv/sql, and delete the nuv
file, but all I was interested in was the description.

Dunno if anyone is interested in patches.
