This is the behavior I get when my recordedmarkup table is corrupt.  If you 
manually load the mythconverg database in mysql and it says something like 
"Cannot read recordedmarkup.MYI" then yours is probably messed up too.  In 
this case just run "REPAIR TABLE recordedmarkup;" and after a short time 
it'll be all good again (hopefully).  Note that also you'll most likely have 
to queue up some shows to get re-commercial flagged if they were flagging 
while the table was corrupt.
