As usual, the archives answer all:
The following is a shell script I wrote that uses what's contained in
the above message:
# mythorphaned -
mysql -umythtv -pmythtv mythconverg -B \
-e 'SELECT basename FROM recorded;' > /tmp/mythfiles
# Specify the directory MythTV records to (I have multiple entries
# here since I use Lincoln Dale's multiple-directories patch
ls /mythtv/video /mythtv/video2 /misc/cube/mythtv/store | \
grep -vf /tmp/mythfiles | \
grep -v 'nfslockfile.lock'
rm -rf /tmp/mythfiles
As I am utterly ignorant of SQL, I'd appreciate suggestions on how to
automatically extract the recording directories from the database.
