Multiple backends confuse myth.find_orphans.pl

Description

In my setup, I have two backends, a master and a slave, which share the same set of recording directories via NFS.

Recordings, therefore, get attributed to two different hosts. This confuses the current implementation of myth.find_orphans.pl, because it always assumes that the recordings it is checking are on a single host. The attached patch corrects this problem.

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.find_orphans.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.
