Have you checked your database? Sounds like your seek tables may be
corrupt. You can fix it by running optimize_mythdb.pl (from the contrib
directory of the MythTV source distribution). And, BTW, I highly
recommend running optimize_mythdb.pl daily in a cron job (as recommended
in the comments at the top of the script).
If your database had corruption (in recordedmarkup), after running the
script, your new recordings will work fine, but you'll have to run
"mythcommflag --rebuild" on all your "broken" recordings.
