although it took a bit of work to get it all working. Basically ML is a
bash script run as a user job that runs after a recording, looks up the
metadata online, and creates a symlink with a sane name like "Family Guy
S00E01 (Stewie Griffin the untold story).mpg". I then share out that
symlink folder over SMB and Plex Media Server (on a Windows machine but I
think there's a Linux version) periodically scans that folder for new
additions, and adds the episodes to its database.
Apparently in 0.25 there's something called MythMetaDataLookup which makes
