You rock! That worked.. although it did take a little convincing. It
didn't like the default names of the files (The tivo left them with file
names like "Law & Order - Deadlock", which, I think, caused one of the
parts of the script to fail. I renamed the files to be generic names
(matching the format of the rest of the recorded programs).
Thanks again for the quick and accurate response!
