i had been thinking something similar. my main concerns is that as i
start keeping shows/etc that i've recorded, my 'watch recrdings' list is
getting bigger and bigger, and harder to find the new stuff i'm
interested in. i was thinking that after i transcoded down and removed
commercials, i could optionally transfer it to a 'mytharchive' module,
which would look very similar to the watch recordings screen in mythtv,
but use separate tables to differentiate between recordings i'm
archiving and things that i've just recorded but not watched yet. in
addition to moving it in the database, i want to optionally have a
separate location to store the archived files.
i'm not really a big compressed movie fan, so i've not bothered to even
look at mythvideo, but maybe i should. although i really do like the
way watch recordings organizes the lists though, so i might still want
to keep it separate from mythvideo. i'll check it out tonight i think.
