Certain scripts have been converted to use the perl bindings in accessing the Mythconverg database. (Explain here the good reasons this was done...) (When did this happen; which version of MythTV?)

Scripts converted to use bindings

You must have the MySQL DBD and the DBI interface modules installed. If not, running a converted script will result in an error message similar to the following:

Can't locate in @INC

Just install libmythtv-perl BEFORE compiling

Macintosh OS X Install

The instructions from worked for me.

Note: I tried installing via CPAN and MacPorts but perl still could not find the DBI/DBD modules. I don't know why.
