    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.
