I recently decided I liked mythtv enough to buy real hardware for it, so
I did just that. Parts arrived, I got it put together, stage 1 gentoo,
I backed up all the storage directories for my test mythtv system, which
included a LOT of television recordings. I moved this backup to the new
mythtv system. All the music files and video files were scanned in with
success (ie: ID3 tags from the MP3s), but when I went to look at tv
recordings, nothing was there. Then it hit me -- "I didn't back up the
DB...DOH!" (And of course, the test sytem had already been wiped clean.)
So...... the question is:
Is there a way to restore to the db the listing of the nv tv recordings
and png images? Do these nv files store the tv equivalent of ID3 tags
so I don't simply get a raw listing of filenames? I realize I could
just move these files to the media/video area, but for various reasons,
I'd prefer them to be in tv recordings.
Thanks for the help.
