Questions here for those that know the inner workings.  Is there a 
process for recreating the indicies in the database on files like this?  
Also, is it possible to import non-nuv files into a backend (like other 
MPEG-4 files)?  I know you can play them through MythVideo and that's 
what I've been doing now but I'd like to also be able to see them in 
Watch Recordings if that is possible...
