Hi Doug, thanks - I think you have put your finger on it.
jamu -Mf reports
This is not correct. I have configured in the frontend under 'Videos Settings'->'General Settings'->'Directories that hold videos' is '/media/entertainment/Videos'.
So why is jamu ingoring this? And how do I fix it?
In the meantime, I tried symlinking /var/lib/mythtv/videos to /media/entertainment/Videos.
Now the interactive session is running, and finding all kinds of missing stuff, and deleting all the metadata I have carefully entered by hand, and when I go back into 'Watch Videos' I now have an entry 'Storage Groups' which lists one duplicate entry for each of my videos. And I STILL have no metadata, not even for all the videos I had painstakingly done it by hand for.
I don't have any storage groups. I don't want any storage groups. I am beginning to think that jamu doesn't work without them. Looks like a bug to me.
Does anybody know how to restore the database backup that mythbutnu creates, because jamu has snafu'd mine?
