Hi Raymond,

This script is exactly what I would like to do (move recordings to
mythvideo permanently) , just not to the extent that it is so
customizable.  I cannot find this in any of my mythtv sources though.
Is it something that is going to be in the distributed source, or
somewhere we can grab it?  I cannot find it in git currently.

Glad I read this thread.
