MythTV 0.26 filenames are based on UTC, while the Mythfrontend display uses local time. I'm still using mental arithmetic to convert, but users not in the UK may find this more inconvenient.

Filenames should not be processed for any information beyond the name of the file. While the name does contain the channel id and start time in some form, that information is nothing more than a convenient means to generate a unique filename. Whether the times are local or UTC should be irrelevant. If you need more information about the recording, you can have that passed to the script on the command line by the jobqueue. wagnerrp 14:21, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
