...without reinstalling mythburn and specifying a proper temp dir?!? After
getting your question answered at least twice on the email list?
When I did it, it didn't appear to have done anything.
I'm sure "it" did "something". Whether "it" is mythtv or mythtvburin, I'm
also sure that there is a logfile of exactly what was done. Have you looked
at the logfile?
I checked my /video folder and everything was gone again.
So if I'm correct then Mythburn deletes everything in the working folder

Is it just me or is that kind of stupid?
Having a program that uses gigs of temp space *not* clean up it's temp dir

Well, you can delete any image files in /video since the recordings are
You're going to have to delete the recordings' info from MySQL. I find
phpMyAdmin to be a very helpful tool for working with MySQL when sql syntax
