OK, five mins after posting this I think I have realised what
happened and I'm not sure it should work this way.
I have two front-ends running on laptops downstairs and one backend
running on a server upstairs. The Mythvideo video directory is
configured to be /mnt/monster/Movies but this directory isn't mapped
to either of the client machines. This morning I tried to update the
movie listing from one of the laptops and I think it tried to look for
them on its own drive. Obviously, not finding any it deleted
everything in the database.
So - should mythvideo not use mythbackend to search for new files on
the server? This is what I would expect from a client/server
application. Or should I be mounting drives on each of the front ends
to match the backend which doesn't follow any of the rest of mythtv.
e.g. streaming video over the network or executing SQL statements to
the back end database.
