Well, this sounds scary so I won't ask...

Before doing anything destructive, backup your DB in it's current
state http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-22.html#ss22.5 .

$ mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
mysql> select starttime,title from recorded where hostname='slavehost';

to see if it matched the right stuff. If you had moved the recorded
files from the slave to the master before this "perminantly disconnected"
event, you could:

mysql> update recorded set hostname='masterhost' where hostname='slavehost';

but if the recorded files are actually gone then:

mysql> delete from recorded where hostname='slavehost';
