[mythtv-users] how to cut recordings to create own with own title / subtitle ?

I wrote a couple script to do this.

The first script - check to see if the is a current file in my export
directory (so I don't overwrite all thing). Next it exports all the
recorded* table entries (ie recorded, recordedmarkup) from the
database, for the desired recording. Then it copies the recording to
my export directory.
So now the full recording is backed up.

I then go in and cut out the first section, and call the first script
again to export that section.
The I call a second script that deletes the recording from myth and
reinserts the full recording from the backup.

And repeat until finished.
