[mythtv-users] manage recordings

In my media library, I have about 50 recordings for me and about 250 for 
my daughter. I have a group for me and another one for my daughter, but 
the recordings are alltogether in the same folder on my desktop computer.

This is a problem when I am not at home and I want to regard films. The 
difficulty is to copy some of the films on my laptop.

I have about 300 films in one folder on my desktop, how to find some of 
the 50 films for me I could copy on my laptop ?

I use mythlink and I see the real name of the recordings in the folder 
"links". But it is not easy to get a list of the links and their 
targets. I already did it with readlink, but I cannot find again who to 
do. And even with this list, it is not easy to select and copy recordings.

My daughter does not often regard here recordings. So the best way would 
be to move them to another dedicated folder. If I move them to "Videos", 
I shall loose all the informations about them. If possible, I would like 
to keep them.

thanks for your hints

Happy New Year !
