Normally you'd just copy the video files into your tv folder and run  
the sql but since you've upgraded myth the structure of the database  
has probably changed. I think in .20 the location of the keyframe  
indexes changed so that old sql would be putting data the wrong place.

Best option is to copy the video files to your tv folder, no changes  
there, but only execute the first insert in each sql file. That's the  
one that goes into the recorded table which I don't think changed.  
You could try exporting an existing recording and comparing those  
first inserts to verify.

To get your seektables back run the mythcommflag program with -- 
rebuild and --file options.
