[mythtv-users] nuvexport Specifying Recordings Directory

I am running the svn version of Myth, which has nuvexport built in. I 
wanted to be able to export dvb radio recordings as mp3. However, I 
found the dvbradioexport.pl script in contrib, which does what I want.

However, I uncovered a possible bug in the Myth Makefile. I configured 
Myth with --with-bindings-perl, but none of the perl bindings actually 
got built or installed. I had to go into bindings/perl and run make then 
make install. I can now use dvbradioexport.pl.
