One of the differences between 0.20 and 0.21 is the storage groups which
allows more than one recording directory to be created. That changes the
way recordings are handled in MythArchive. In 0.20 the script just
needed the recordings file names because they where all stored in the
same directory.In 0.21 it now requires the full path and file name
because they could be stored in any of the storage group directories.

You must still have some old (pre 0.21) archive items in the
archiveitems table that don't have the full path. Run this query in
mysql to remove all the old items and start with a clean table.

When you first run ProjectX it does run the GUI showing you a licence
agreement that you have to agree to before projectx will run. It should
only do it once though so long as it can create it's config file. Not
sure where it writes it probably your HOME directory.
