There is a myth.rebuilddatabase.pl script in the contrib folder of the 
MythTV source that will let you add files.  If they are NUV just put 
them in your TV recording path and run.   If they are AVI or another 
extension, pass the --ext avi option to it.  It should prompt for all 
the necessary information.
