createnfos.py is python script written by Fabian Rothfuchs that allows creating NFO files out of an existing MythTV database, which can be used by Fill_mythvideo_metadata.pl ( see Fill_mythvideo_metadata.pl#NFO_Files ).
The script was designed for MythTV 0.21, an update to 0.22 is currently in development.
The latest version can be downloaded from here .
The script does not require arguments. Without any, the script will try creating all the NFOs by using the filenames found in the database.
For instance, if `/media/series/episode1.avi` is found, the script will try creating a `/media/series/episode1.nfo` file.
-d, --dummy do not create, just print files and content
Simulating creation of the files - for control freaks :-)
-f, --force force overwriting of existing files
In case of destination path is already containing files, the script requires this parameter to overwrite them
-n, --no-backup do NOT create .backup files
By default the scripts creates .backup files of the NFOs - this can be disabled by this
-q, --quiet don't print status messages
No output except statistics at the end
-v, --verbose print verbose messages
-p PATH, --path=PATH specify path where to recover NFO files
Backup storage path - can be relative or absolute
