i am using php

the movies are TV movies

I am using XBMC (XBMC and mythtv are in different house 900km+ away from each other, with only a 1 hour a day of internet transfer of recorded shows)

this is the scripted i am think of
1 get movie genres from mythtv database for recorded show
2 check to see if those genres folder exist if not create them
3 create a symbolic link in those folders with the title (and subtitle) of the movie linking it to mythtv's internal filename of the recorded show

I dont know what parts of the data base have those pieces of information

Light travels faster then sound, which is why some people appear bright, until you hear them speak
