I've done it once myself. I made a copy of the ringbuf1.nuv (usually
in where your recordings are stored), and then rename the file to the
MythTV nuv convention (i.e. channelid_startime_endtime.nuv), and
manually insert it into the "recorded" table in the database
I suppose if you have any external program that can play MythTV's
nuv file, you won't have to fiddle with the database.

Yes, in fact this is a feature I'd like to have, too.
