If your playing about with the database anyway, think about converting
it to innodb rather than myisam.
I've had many issues with myth and myisam, If its recording or some such
when there's a power failure it will often corrupt the recordedseek table.
innodb is ACID compliant and seems to tolerate that kind of abuse
better. I have done this on all the systems I "look after" and haven't
had a problem with it. (and no more recordedseek table crashes either.)
The symptom (if google is watching) is when playing a video you cant
jump forward or back within the show.
To fix it you repair the table then rebuild the seektable.
I used this
find /var/lib/ -iname "*.mpg" -mtime +50 -print0 | xargs -0 -n1
mythtranscode --mpeg2 --buildindex --allkeys --showprogress --infiles -0
-n1 mythtranscode --mpeg2 --buildindex --allkeys --showprogress --infile
to find all old shows then run mythtranscode over them, mythcommflag
would say it ran but the problem persisted.
Theres probably no harm in running that command without the -mtime +50
argument to just do all videos. I use that find command to cover all my
