I'm at work so i can't be sure I'm not saying something dumb here by
checking out what I say first but... I don't think there is anything on that
page that will help move videos from one FE/BE to another so I can retire
the first one. If I'm wrong please let me know I'm not trying to be
argumentative I'm just missing something here ( brain fried).

But could I share /myth/video via nfs and drop in 'movie.vob' from the
other machine, then import the data in the 'videometadata' table and have it
show up O.K? I'm going to install an updated frontend only on that one
later I just thought I should be able to move all the movies at once rather
that archive or recopy them from disk.
