I would like to see the script. It seemed to me that merging was going 
to be more complicated than migrating to a new database because of 
conflicts in some fields. For example the chanid ssems to be instance 
specific even for two masters using the same lineup.

Hi Ken,
   I am in the same situation.
   I haven't seen any detailed steps for it yet.
   But here is what I was going to do when I had the time.
   1. extract(backup) the contents of the recordings database from the 
master I am retiring.
   2. copy all of the recordings from the retiring boxes myth/tv 
directory to the new single master /myth/tv directory
   3. Import(restore) the contents into the new single masters database 
using the script generated in step 1.

   Of course I would do all those things you are supposed to do like 
backup the database before, blah blah blah.

   Now I "had" the script to extract what was needed and create a series 
of insert statements but I can't find it right now.
   I will post it tonight if I can dig it up.

into a non-master logically merging the contents.

Any pointers on this?
