Last CVS update meaning when?  In other words, did you update last
month, last week or last night?

The frame number it's trying to skip to would indicate you have a
9958 hour long recording which is unlikely, so either commercial
flagging went haywire or something with your recordedmarkups table is.

If you are using software compression, can you try updating to current
CVS (ie, now) and re-flag the program you're having a problem with
using the popup menu on the Watch Recording screen.  Then if it is
still broke, let me know.
