Does it allow me find© the recorded files to another machine so I can watch them on the road? (searching trough the hashed filenames is no fun)
There is a perl script shipped with myth that renames files to a human readable form and updates the myth database with the new name. I use mythrename.pl, but it has been deprecated because its default options are supposedly dangerous in favor of Mythlink.pl which I haven't used.
The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
