Hi everyone. Happy New Year! I am trying to backup the database in Mythtv without success. I have read several articles and posts, but what I am doing is not working. Here is the output of the terminal:

salliemae@salliemae:~$ mythconverg_backup.pl --verbose

Configuring environment:
- username: salliemae
- HOME: /home/salliemae
- MYTHCONFDIR: /home/salliemae/.mythtv

Applying command-line arguments.

Checking configuration.

Invalid backup directory, stopped at /usr/local/bin/mythconverg_backup.pl line 870.

I do not understand what I am doing wrong. Can someone please help me. Any suggestions will be appreciated. sister5091
