Ok better news,
I haven't done anything manually to the database only via the Myth
GUI, Initially I had the user jobs enabled on the master and not on
the slave but all are enabled on both now.
The master has three recordings directories in default group:
The slave has one directory:
It seems that the system knows which back end recorded the show as it
gives a url instead of a path for remote files
%DIR% = myth://126.96.36.199:6543/7490_200904012059.mpg instead of /var/lib/
mythtv3/recordings/ or whichever directory it is.
I'd rather not have to nuke the database as I have a few hundred
recording rules and 2.5TB of recordings I'd rather not lose track of.
Where would I go looking in the database for this stuff to check it's
I've run the usual database check and extended check from MythWeb and
no problems are reported.
