What happens when you apply the attached patch to mythrename.pl? Note:
It is not meant as a solution to your problem (thus the name), but
should help identify if the problem is what I think it may be. It
simply disables the "filetype" check (which is currently performed using
You should be able to apply the patch by going into the directory
containing mythrename.pl (or a copy of mythrename.pl) and issuing the
patch -Np1 -i /path/to/mythtv-mythrename_filetype_hack.patch
Note that once the patch is applied all your links will have the ".mpg"
extension--even those that refer to NUV files. This is unimportant
unless you're using the links with a broken OS that relies on filename
extensions to figure out a file's content type.
If the patch allows mythrename.pl to succeed, please reply with the
mplayer -v -v -v -v -nolirc -nojoystick \
-vo null -ao null -frames 1 \
-identify '/path/to/radio_recording.mpg' 2>&1 |
This can be used to "fix" the bindings to work on radio streams.
