mythmetadatalookup doesn't pull inetref from recording rule

I ran mythmetadatalookup on my recordings and a number of them ended up with the wrong inetref. For example, I have five recordings of the TV Show "Love Bites" all of which have the wrong inetref. I used the UI to update the inetref for the "Love Bites" recording rule but the recordings all still have the wrong inetref. I figured if I remove the inetref for the recordings (in the db) and re-run mythmetadatalookup with the chanid and starttime for each one it would pull the correct inetref from the recording rule, but unfortunately it always picks the wrong inetref. I would expect mythmetadatalookup to use the inetref in the rule if the recording doesn't have one set. Is there a better way to update the inetrefs for recordings? I probably have ~50 or so recordings with this issue.

BTW, I love the new metadata lookup feature and it has significantly increased the WAF which is why I want to fill out the rest of my recordings.

mythmetadatalookup isn't supposed to apply the inetref from the recording rule to existing recordings-- the automated mode you are using does its best on old recordings, but it's just that, a best effort.

Inetref, season, and episode can be manually set on old recordings in the edit metadata option for recordings.

I had some valid reasons for not doing this originally, but they either evaporated or weren't good enough for me to recall.

Fixed in 6443825.
