You can also use cpan to install Time::Format. I'm not sure how that  
would interact with your distro but I had no problems on debian.

It's odd that rebuilddatabase finishes OK but you still have no  
seektable. Instead of that transcoding workaround you could try  
rebuilding the seektable manually, the program is mythcommflag and  
the arguments are --rebuild --file and then the file name.

One other thought - the location of the seek information changed in . 
20. If your mythcommflag is from .19 it would be putting the data in  
the wrong place. I'm not sure how possible/likely this is but I'd  
check the build dates on your various myth executables.
