MythTV 0.24 and later will optionally perform metadata lookup on all new
content added to the database during a file scan. This option is
disabled by default. You can also call this bulk lookup independent of
the content scan, but it will only operate on a given video once, after
which it is marked as processed, and skipped on subsequent passes. The
only other time MythTV performs a metadata lookup is when you call it
interactively for one specific video.
