Hi all. Over the weekend, I installed a fresh copy of 710 RC2. I added my media drive back into the mix, and all my shows show up in the LMCE Video menu, as if it never happened. However, when launching the MythTV viewer, I do not see my recordings. I can remember in my Knoppmyth days, that there was a script included, that would rebuild/repopulate your mythtv menu after a fresh install. I think it was called I was wondering if this script could be run in LMCE. It uses the same database as pure MythTV, mythconverg, but I was wondering if any of the LMCE/MythTV gurus, would have any insight as to whether or not this would still work. I am not sure how interwoven if at all the mythconverg db is with the pluto_main db.

Any ideas would be great. I have yet to find the script on the internet, but I have a Knoppmyth disc at home, and I could install that on a test box, and get the file. If I am not mistaken, the mythbuntu cd I have would probably have the file as well.

On another note, if there are any mysql guru's out there, perhaps you may know of a different way to re-import the data into the mythconverg db?

Thanks in advance,
