[mythtv-users] Seektable issues

Thanks, Mike.  I missed the MPEG2 part of that wiki entry.

The odd thing is that my rebuild did *something*  - the shows that were
unwatchable before are at least watchable now.

--all does not work for seektable rebuilds (at least not in 0.21-fixes; it's
"supposed to" in trunk, but I've never tested).  So, you actually just
scanned for commercials on every single recording.

Also, in 0.21-fixes, mythcommflag --rebuild does not work for (nearly all)
MPEG-2.  You need to use mythtranscode --buildindex.

You need to run the command on every single recording individually.  Note,
also, that --queue does not work with --rebuild.  Therefore, run a script...


cd /path/to/first/recordings/directory
for file in *; do
 mythtranscode --mpeg2 --buildindex --allkeys \
              --showprogress --infile $file
cd /path/to/next/recordings/directory

(and so on)

And, far more importantly:
