Yeah, I found the mythtv DB login stuff in there about 30 minutes after 
I posted my last response.  I changed that accordingly and the script 
chugged along for quite a while.  It looked like it finished, but I got 
that font error again and I have no ISO.  I guess I'll have to look into 
that one a little more in the next day or 2.

Thanks!  If you do have any insight into the font issue, I'm all ears. ;-)
