I had the exact same problem and it turned out to be permissions on the backend mysql database. It was a while ago but I couldn't read the recordedmarkup table. I was using a different user from the remote frontend or I just hadn't set up the permissions properly. It was definitely the recordedmarkup table that had the information I needed. As soon as I fixed the permissions seeking worked perfectly.
