Well, there's the rub.  I had considered something like this, but
there are six combinations in which I would normally run my user jobs,
depending on what kind of processing I want for a given show. (jobs 1
and 3, 1 and 4, 2 and 3, 2 and 4, just 3, or just 4)  So that would
require six user jobs, not including the new one I need.
Thanks for the idea though.

I currently use a horrible hack to do this!
Basically I use the recording group as a parameter and pass that to the script.
Yes it's horrible...but it works ;-)


Same here-Set up different encoding jobs as a hash in your script and match their names to "recording groups" which you assign in MythTV. I modified pdatranscode.pl to do this very thing.
