Hey all,

Have got mythvideoexport running as a user job, am wanting a fresh start on
this box, so figured this was the best way of getting nicely named
recordings to take to my new install.

Have set the script up in the backend with the following options as a test:

/home/user/Desktop/mythvideoexport.py --tformat %TITLE%

All runs OK, output in backend logs as follows:

2010-12-30 10:18:06.330 JobQueue: Started mythvideoexport for "Upstairs
Downstairs":"The Cuckoo" recorded from channel 1001 at 2010-12-28T20:55:00
Changing TV format to: %title%
2010-12-30 10:18:07.077 JobQueue: Finished "Upstairs Downstairs":"The
Cuckoo" for 1001 at 2010-12-28T20:55:00 recorded from channel %3
2010-12-30 10:18:11.341 JobQueue: Started mythvideoexport for "How Do They
Do It?" recorded from channel 1038 at 2010-12-28T19:55:00
Changing TV format to: %title%
2010-12-30 10:18:11.682 JobQueue: Finished "How Do They Do It?" for 1038 at
2010-12-28T19:55:00 recorded from channel %3
2010-12-30 10:18:16.350 JobQueue: Started mythvideoexport for "Greatest
Christmas TV Ads" recorded from channel 1005 at 2010-12-28T19:55:00
Changing TV format to: %title%
2010-12-30 10:18:16.685 JobQueue: Finished "Greatest Christmas TV Ads" for
1005 at 2010-12-28T19:55:00 recorded from channel %3

But where should the renamed videos go?  I assumed they would go to the
/var/lib/mythtv/videos directory, which is the default folder for
MythVideo.  Or am I not understanding something?

Another question on this, is there an easy way to run this on all
recordings?  Otherwise I would have to set this off on each one (quite quick
via mythweb).

Many thanks for any pointers
