Give it a proper name and put it in the proper location and run
myth.rebuilddatabase.pl (from the contrib directory).
Then, run mythcommflag -f <filename> or (probably better), use
mythfrontend to add a commflag job to the queue for the imported files.
See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/131476#131476 for
more info. Ignore the stuff about deleting the existing copy, but the
info about filename formats and the procedure for rebuilding the
database still applies...
