Comment(by anonymous):

 I just wanted to give an update to the status of this ticket.

 Out of frustration I backed up my recorded and scheduled tv shows and
 deleted the mythconverg database and recreated it.

 This actually fixed the import dvd program, which is great, but then I had
 duplicate times for the same show under program finder which I knew was
 going to come back to haunt me.

 So I bit the bullet and deleted all my saved tv shows I have ever recorded
 in a years time :(

 I recreated the database again and everything is working perfectly.

 The short story is mythtv seems to have some problems with restoring from
 backups. My example was from backing up from mythtv version .21 to version
 .21. Even though I faithfully backup everything in the just in case
 moments, I am not sure about mythtv.

 I will continue to backup mythtv but if this problem occurs again I might
 have to start recommending to people to forgo the backups and start from
 scratch to fix any problem the user is having no matter how small.
