#6006 closed defect (Won't Fix)

myth.rebuilddatabase.pl is broken

Description

myth.rebuilddatabase.pl is not working properly with MythTV 0.21 on Ubuntu Intrepid.

I have updated the script to both function properly and make it easier for a user to restore a large number of recordings to the MythTV database. The script will now autodetect all of the video parameters (except title, subtitle, and description), and will play the file for the user just before prompting for that information.

Please see attached .diff file

Just realized I uploaded the wrong .diff file...the first one (myth.rebuilddatabase.pl.diff) had the database information for a test system that no longer exists. The second file (myth.rebuilddatabase.pl.2.diff) is the correct one to upload to SVN,

Thank you for the patch. We sincerely appreciate the effort that went into your patch. Unfortunately, the script is deprecated and will no longer be maintained.

The functionality provided by myth.rebuilddatabase.pl will be incorporated into mythbackend (with interfaces in mythfrontend and MythWeb) to ensure it's kept up to date with future changes and to make accessing the functionality easier for users. The existing script has a lot of problems, in addition to the one mentioned here, because it hasn't been maintained across various changes to core MythTV, and its use is not recommended. Therefore, the script was removed from contrib.
