Programming on the Edge

Myth Assistant

Published by Matt Hicks under , , , , , on Monday, March 17, 2008
Though I actually wrote this a couple years ago I finally decided to contribute this utility back to the community. This tool allows a graphical remote connection to a MythTV database and can copy and delete recordings over a Samba share. It is a graphical utility written in Java to search recordings, see details of recordings, copy single and batches of recordings, and other features for remote access to recorded programs. This should work on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Hopefully other people can get as much use out of this tool as I have. Feel free to post a comment if you found this useful.

I get 404 - not found for all of the above links.

Why oh why can't I post an anonymous comment???

Sorry about that, the link was broken, but I fixed it. Give it a try now.

This is useful if one doesn't use storage groups. However if you use storage groups, it leaves you "hunting and pecking" to find the recording. Would it be difficult to make work with storage groups?

Thanks for sharing!

What about the license or the sources? I might be interested in updating it.

@button, the license is entirely open but I would prefer credit be given to me if this code is used in another project though. I've uploaded the source code jar for the project as well. Have fun. :)
