Sorry it took me so long to reply, but after I wrote up a response, I
checked the mythfrontend --help output, and it seemed to indicate that I
was wrong. Yesterday, however, Stuart Morgan confirmed that the
approach I had planned to tell you about does work (and we will likely
change the --help output to better describe what it does). Then I took
another day trying to find your post so I could actually reply.
Anyway, just use:
to prompt for the language. It's listed in the --help output as:
-p or --prompt Always prompt for Mythbackend selection.
but will actually cause a prompt for language (as we need to ensure we
ask about database/backend using the proper language).
