I went to Watch Recordings and selected my recorded show.  Then pressed 
'e' which brought up a menu with Metadata Option.  Selecting that 
allowed me to change the inetref number, select Done, then select Save. 
However selecting 'm' and and Job Options -> Begin Metadata Lookup seems 
to do nothing.  Looking at the Backend Status (using mythweb), no job is 
even started.  I would at least expect it to start, even if it then failed.
