I've got three boxes all running Knoppixmyth R5F27. All three run the 
same version of mythrename.pl, but one box spits out links with .nuv 
extensions even though all media files are .mpg.

I've done a little searching on this and it has been suggested that this 
is dependent on the results of the 'file -b' command in mythrename, so I 
copied the results from a couple tests:

PC with NUV links:

AVPC1:~# file --v
AVPC1:~# file -b /mnt/AVPC1/tv/1004_20071106160900.mpg 2>/dev/null
MPEG sequence, v2, program multiplex

PC with MPG links:

AVPC2:~# file --v
AVPC2:~# file -b /mnt/AVPC2/tv/1004_20071106180900.mpg 2>/dev/null
MPEG sequence, v2, program multiplex

Since these seem identical, I'm not sure what else could make these PCs 
behave differently. Any further troubleshooting suggestions would be
