Okay, thanks for the clarification. I've just assumed that it
would always fix the seektable.

Agreed, not a high priority but I would like to have this as
a 'safety net' to know that I could repair a damaged file if
necessary. If you do tinker with mythcommflag again, one other
low priority feature I'd like to see is a --file flag like:

mythcommflag -f 1024_20031016230000_20031017000000.nuv

then extract the chanid and starttime from the filename.

Thanks for writing this, Chris. I do use this quite often.
