Two ways.  One, search the list for ragetvgrab and you'll find a script that
will import recordings in a particular naming convention using information
from the Rage TV website as title/description.  Otherwise, set up and
configure the MythVideo frontend plugin and put your files in it's specified
folder and they will be imported using the Video Manager (usually used for
movies, etc).  You can also just put them in the recording folder for MythTV
and run the myth.rebuilddatabase.pl script from the contrib folder of the
source to import with it prompting you for information.
