Is jamu suppose to also be used with recording data?  -


I seem to always have orphaned *.png files

I've been using this to query the database and compare with directory files

mysql -u root -psecret -e "use mythconverg;SELECT
basename,storagegroup FROM recorded;\q"|grep Default|awk {'print $1'}
|sort > db.recordings.files

ls /var/lib/mythtv/recordings |awk -F. {'print $1'} |sort -u >

diff db.recordings.files dir.recordings.files|more
