MythTV, starting with the 0.25 release, provides a new option for serving content from a machine that does not have tuners attached. The mythmediaserver program uses the modular protocol library to perform file serving duties.

mythmediaserver version: fixes/0.25 [v0.25.3-117b611e-MacPorts]

MythMediaServer is a daemon implementing the backend file server.
It is intended to allow access to remote file storage on machines
that do not have tuners, and as such cannot run a backend.

Misc. Options:
-d OR --daemon              Fork application into background after startup.
-O OR --override-setting    Override a single setting defined by a key=value pair.
--override-settings-file    Define a file of key=value pairs to be loaded for setting overrides.
-p OR --pidfile             Write PID of application to filename.
-h OR --help OR --usage     Display this help printout, or give detailed information of selected option.
--version                   Display version information.

Logging Options:
--loglevel                  Set the logging level.  All log messages at lower levels will be discarded.
                            In descending order: emerg, alert, crit, err, warning, notice, info, debug
                            defaults to info
--logpath                   Writes logging messages to a file in the directory logpath with filenames in the format:
                            This is typically used in combination with --daemon, and if used in combination with --pidfile, this can be used with log rotators, using the HUP call to inform MythTV to reload the file
--nodblog                   Disable database logging.
-q OR --quiet               Don't log to the console (-q).  Don't log anywhere (-q -q)
--syslog                    Set the syslog logging facility.
                            Set to "none" to disable, defaults to none.
-v OR --verbose             Specify log filtering. Use '-v help' for level info.
