[mythtv-users] More mythvidexport.py issues, "NameError: global name 'hosts' is not defined"

Hey again all,

Been messing with mythvidexport.py again today, but not getting any further.

Basically, it keeps falling back to Generic for the naming output, about
50/50 when it does this.  All recordings I have are TV, no films or anything
else.  Can only assume the data isn't there for it to do TV naming?!

So, I thought if the data wasn't there, then I could just change the Generic
output to include the recording date/time, so that each had a different name
(they were just being named by title, so weekly shows would just overwrite
each other).

I ran this in the command line:

'/home/user/Desktop/mythvideoexport.py' --gformat Videos/%STARTTIME%-%TITLE%

But get the following errors:

Changing Generic format to: Videos/%STARTTIME%-%TITLE%
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/user/Desktop/mythvideoexport.py", line 381, in <module>
  File "/home/user/Desktop/mythvideoexport.py", line 374, in main
    db.settings[hosts]['mythvideo.GENERICexportfmt'] = opts.gformat
NameError: global name 'hosts' is not defined

Even just running "'/home/user/Desktop/mythvideoexport.py' --gformat
%TITLE%"gives the same error.

Any ideas?
