Removing the ':' (colon) would be good as well since Mac OS X treats it as a directory separator. I would recommend using something other than the '|' as the replacement.. Perhaps a '-' or '_' ?

These are excellent points, but mythvidexport.py is not actually part of the MythTV code base. Please feel free to update the user-editable wiki page. Thanks!
