[mythtv-users] Free tip for those playing with cutting commercials

I had a recording and was trying to edit out commercials.  I wanted to 
cut some of the stuff before the show started, and ended up putting a 
cut right at 0:00:00.00.  So it cut the entire show.

Then I exited in a frenzy of hitting Escape.  Dumb, I know...

In a situation like this, the one thing that you should ABSOLUTELY *NOT* 
DO is start a transcode.  You'll lose the recording.

Can't go back into it to edit it either.  The frontend hangs.  Solution? 
  Go into the 'recorded' table and replace the 'cutlist' entry for that 
show with the value NULL.

Problem solved.

This is why it's good to have phpMyAdmin installed, since I'm not a DBA!
