I was also interested in something like this. Just to be able to see
the different settings per frontend.
2010-01-31 10:37:35.545 mythfrontend version:
branches/release-0-22-fixes  www.mythtv.org
Valid options are:
-l or --logfile filename Writes STDERR and STDOUT messages to filename
-r or --reset Resets frontend appearance settings and language
-display X-server Create GUI on X-server, not localhost
-geometry or --geometry WxH Override window size settings
-geometry WxH+X+Y Override window size and position
-w or --windowed Run in windowed mode
-nw or --no-windowed Run in non-windowed mode
-O or --override-setting KEY=VALUE
Force the setting named 'KEY' to value 'VALUE'
This option may be repeated multiple times
File containing KEY=VALUE pairs for settings
Use a comma seperated list to return
-G or --get-setting KEY[,KEY2,etc]
Returns the current database setting for 'KEY'
--version Version information
-v or --verbose debug-level Use '-v help' for level info
-p or --prompt Always prompt for Mythbackend selection.
-d or --disable-autodiscovery Never prompt for Mythbackend selection.
-u or --upgrade-schema Allow mythfrontend to upgrade the database schema
<plugin> Initialize and run this plugin
$MYTHTVDIR Set the installation prefix
$MYTHCONFDIR Set the config dir (instead of ~/.mythtv)
This gives some syntax usage, but doesn't dump the settings. Is there
a way to do that?
