That's because I'm a retard.  :)   I fixed that and decided the script 
was 'good enough' other wise I'd forever be tinkering. As far as I can 
remember it now drops a video in with all the MythVideo defaults 
(assuming someone's foolish enough to remove the comment markers obvious 
:) ) so should be handy for batch imports.

True enough.  I'll add it to the list of things to do/change, at the 
momment I'm figuring out how to do an almighty do ... while loop in 
bash.  I'm rather rusty and only ever did C.
