Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

If you want to get 720p you'll need to change the -X to -Y. It's actually pretty surprising that the biggest difference isn't in the resolution, but in the compression format. I agree it may seem better to use the -Y but there was a reason why I used the -X and it may have been for supporting and g...

Re: Script to export Mythtv recordings to a folder or NAS

Se99: problem was probably not having write permissions for the folder as the script when run by the backend maybe run as mythtv or a different user to what you use.
