Oh. Ok! I see what you are talking about. It is a problem with mythicalSetup making extra dirs which go unused. I'll take care of that tonight.
SVN is having technical difficulties right now. It will be Online, but I would advise against building on SVN for now. Please use the stable option in mythicalSetup until I get it all ironed out. It will be up soon. Just be patient and revert to stable until further notice.

I'm working on: permissions, recognition and folder tracking. It could get ugly if you grab a SVN at the wrong time. Changes are coming fast and tested nearly immediately then revised.

This may go on most of tomorrow and into the week.
I watch a show called All Saints
the subtitle for the episode is "End game"
mythicalLibraian gave it season 02 Episode 25
yet the last episode recorded was from season 10

looking at the list there are 2 episode with "End game"
http://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=71815&lid=7

Is there any way to guesstimate the season that Episode is in based on the pasts Episodes?
This should have been fixed in last night's SVN revision session. The problem was mythicalLibrarian was matching based on original airdate, then verifying it's fuzzy logic capabilities (just to throw a "fuzzy does not jive with airdate" message in the logs), but it was not resetting the match to the airdate. The problem is fixed and mythicalLibrarian should correctly identify that episode now. Fuzzy should only be used for a backup when original airdate cannot be matched.
I just checked and the original airdate is not present for that episode. The original airdate needs to be updated.

The SVN is back up and running. I will commit SVN to stable as soon as I am confident that everything is operating properly.
As of:
19 min ago r547 (bypass download support)

mythicalSetup will no longer ask you to build. This was a redundant step and is now elimitated. The first mythicalSetup screen will now ask you if you want to download Latest, Stable, or Build using current and you will then begin the process from there. No more download and then build.

Today many errors were fixed which were mainly just disconcerting and did not apply to the mode which mythicalLibrarian was currently operating. Such as failure to create a folder when in use original dir mode, or echoing of commands which should have been redirected as a comment.

So, if there are no complaints over the weekend, SVN will become stable on Sunday.

Please let me know if there's anything I can do to make the next stable release better. Just let me know if there are any problems.
Let me know if there are any problems. Even the smallest change is worth it if it enhances usability.

http://code.google.com/p/mythicallibrarian/updates/list
mythicalLibrarian Revision 555 committed to stable.

The SVN will now focus on automating doover jobs. Anything mythicalLibrarian determines a doover job will be scheduled for doover with POSIX at.

The SVN should be considered unstable as scheduling jobs can lead to redundance and memory leaks. Since it's inception, mythicalLibrarian has run to completion and stopped. Starting with the next few commits, mythicalLibrarian will begin scheduling jobs.

mythicalLibrarian will now be considered a fully automated media manager. It will be some time before the next SVN gets committed to stable.

Let me know of any undesired operation or problems you may encounter
I'm getting the "ERROR: User job returned non-zero. Check Logs." message on my mythweb backend status. My output.log tells me:

My "MOVEDIR" doesn't appear to be writeable. I've ran sudo chmod a+rw on the output folder, but haven't had any luck. I'm able to run the script just fine through my regular user account, but have verified that the mythtv group can't (sudo su mythtv). I'm a little confused how there's a mythtv group but there isn't a user named mythtv. Any help?
It appears that you are running an old version of mythicalLibrarian. The newer ones have the SVN or stable version in the log.
Code:
@@@@@@@@@@@NEW SEARCH INITIATED AT Sun Sep  5 16:18:05 CDT [email protected]@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Revision 552 Fri Sep 3 14:46:06 CDT 2010 on Linux


Please run the following.
Code:
sudo mythicalLibrarian --update  #to create the setup dir.
cd ~/.mythicalLibrarian/mythicalSetup
sudo mythicalLibrarian --update
mythicalLibrarian --doMaintenance

It should fix your problems if you read the new updated messages. Usually you would just run mythicalLibrarian --update, but since you are updating from an old version, the --doMaintenance flushes the database and old cache logs for you.

Make sure user mythtv has access to read and write in that folder as well.
Also that brings up a good point... The filesystem checks do a great job of telling you that things work or don't, but they don't have descriptive messages as to why. I will increase the error logging for filesystem checks.
thrasherx: R557 took the checkpermissions routine from this:

         echo "Testing write permission on $3">$3/arbitraryfile.ext

It is my hope that these changes will tell you precisely the commands to run from the terminal to make everything work properly. Let me know if there are any problems.
Unfortunately, still nothing Sad When I run "--mythicalDiagnostics" it creates the Mr. Rogers folder just fine, but I'm assuming because i'm not doing it from the mythtv user. Here's my new output.log. I've tried the chmod -R 666 as well as chmod -R a+rw, but it still doesn't work.

Those error messages are important. I can see that permissions are not set correctly. You need to run the commands given in the program. You should have full access at this point. Did you run the commands with sudo to elevate permissions?

Code:
sudo chmod -R 666 "/var/lib/mythtv/recordings"

mythtv does not have permission to run the following:
Code:
mkdir /home/media-server/Videos/TV-Recorded/The National Parks Americas Best Idea

per chance do you run as root on your system when creating folders? This would make the user and group of the paths you're using "root" which would make mythtv not able to access them.

Is /home/media-server a network attached storage drive? If so, then post your /etc/fstab so I can see if the permissions are set correctly for mythtv's use.

here is my NAS entry, eg:
Code:
//192.168.1.1/public /home/mythtv/NAS cifs credentials=/home/adam/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,dir_mode=0777,file_mode=0777 0 0

I need to see the entire section of the log from start to finish. starting with "New Search" and ending right before the end of the log or "New Search" You're cropping important information out.

it's always best to use the "use original dir" option, then share the dir over the network. this way mythtv owns the folder and the operating system shares the folder.

This is some sort of multiuser configuration issue.
So here's what I need:
1. results of ls -l /var/lib/mythtv/recordings
2. results of ls -l /home/media-server/Videos/TV-Recorded/
3. results of cat /etc/fstab
4. the last log entry result of cat ~/home/mythtv/.mythicalLibrarian/output.log

I've run this without success.

Nope, I created it using my main user account.

No, it's a mounted Raid 5 array.

That was the entire entry. I was perplexed as to why the "New Search" phrase was missing, but it's your latest SVN from today (559).
