rm /path/to/recordings/*.png

Then ensure the user running the frontend and the user running the 
backend both have write permission in the recordings directory.  Then, 
go to MythWeb's Recorded Programs page and wait until it finishes 
loading all thumbnails (so you know they've all been generated).  Then, 
test again.
