Originally posted version had a small quote problem.  It worked, but I 
think only because BASH was being nice.  This one should be more robust...

-------------- next part --------------
#!/bin/sh
# mythlink.sh
#
# Creates readable symlinks referring to MythTV recordings
#
# Based on the script mythlink.sh by Dale Gass
#
# Modified by Mike Dean
#  - Provides multiple easily-configurable "views"
#  - System specific information is specified as environment variables
#  - Uses '-' to separate portions of the filename (instead of '_' since '_'
#    is used to replace special characters (such as the space character))
#  - Shows recording year
#  - Shows end time
#  - Separates date and time info
#  - Removes trailing separator (i.e. for movies, which have no subtitle)
#  - Adds an optional extension (for specifying filetype to Windows)


### Modify these values for your installation ###
# The location of the MythTV Recordings (with "ugly" filenames)
MYTH_RECORDINGS_PATH=/var/storage/mythtv
# The path in which the views ("pretty" links) will be created
VIEWS_PATH=/var/storage/mythtv/views
# The extension added to the end of the links, including the period.
# For no extension, specify '' for the value.
EXTENSION='.mpg'
# Enables output for debugging (set to 0 for no output)
DEBUG=0

### The following directory names and formats may be customized ###

# Formats may consist of any combination of
# ${title}, ${subtitle}
# ${date}, ${starttime}, ${endtime}, ${originalairdate} 
# ${category}, ${recgroup}

# Files will be sorted "alphabetically" so the appropriate fields on which you
# would like to sort should be placed at the beginning of the format

# Formats of the individual fields were chosen to minimize confusion caused by
# use of different sorting algorithms by clients (i.e. alphabetically versus
# alphanumerically).

# To add a custom format, simply include a directory name and format in the
# environment variables below.  (Whitespace separates the values.)

# The names of the directories containing the views
DIRECTORIES='time
             title
	     group
	     category
	     original_airdate'
# The formats used for the respective directories specified above
FORMATS='${date}-${starttime}-${endtime}-${title}-${subtitle}
         ${title}-${date}-${starttime}-${endtime}-${subtitle}
         ${recgroup}-${title}-${date}-${starttime}-${endtime}-${subtitle}
         ${category}-${title}-${date}-${starttime}-${endtime}-${subtitle}
         ${title}-${originalairdate}-${subtitle}'


### These values most likely do not need modification ###
# The name of the MythTV database
MYTH_DB=mythconverg
# The database username and password
MYTH_DB_USER=mythtv
MYTH_DB_PASSWD=mythtv
