Jump to: navigation, search is a script in the contrib folder for renaming mythtv recordings to more human-readable filenames. Usage is exactly like, except it supports --chanid and --starttime or --filename to specify that it should only create a link for a specific recording. The file was moved at mythtv revision 23475 due to the destructive nature of the script when used with default options (see here).

Location is in the contrib folder. Various distro file locations are below:

  • Ubuntu 10.04:
    • /usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/user_jobs/

Usage --link [destination directory]


 /usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/user_jobs/ --link /mnt/pretty --format %T/%T%-%S
