[mythtv-users] Moving the location where my videos are stored...

If you're talking about moving the place where MythVideo stores its 
videos, you'll need to do a little SQL magic to change the paths to your 

One option is to write a script which examines files in the current 
directory and uses imdb.pl to inject metadata into mysql.

Another is to write a script which passes the results of 'select 
filename from mythconverg.videometadata' into sed, which will then apply 
a search and replace regexp to the results, and then update the values 
in the db.

Hope that helps.
