I did see your post. I am reluctant to add repository for nightly
builds to this backend server. I'm not sure I know the difference
between nightly builds and .22+fixes.
This is a production backend server only. It already has a number of
updates that it needs but haven't done so. That was going to be
another post on recommendations.
142 packages can be updated.
57 updates are security updates
-M, --mythtvmeta Add/update TV series episode or movie meta data
in MythTV DB
-I, --mythtv_inetref Find and interactively update any missing Interent
reference numbers e.g. IMDB. This option is ONLY
active if the -M option is also selected.
It has been my experience that trying to download metadata only works
sometimes. Meaning I've had to input the # manually to get the data.
Does the -I give you an interactive option to type in the # ?
I did run through the IMDb website to get all the video numbers this
morning and put them in a list for reference.
60+ videos isn't a show stopper, but 600 probably would.
I can do the updates, but as I said I'm reluctant. One of the things
mentioned in the MythTV docs is once it's running don't mess with it.
But I suppose some times you need to, to be some what current.
