[mythtv-users] Trouble importing old recordings

Hi All,

    I've got a bunch of old recordings that I backed up to an external
hard drive.  I used nuvexport with the "extract nuv and sql" option
(wording is approx I don't have nuvexport installed anymore) The
recordings have all been transcoded with the commercials cut out.
I've successfully imported stuff in the past by copying the .nuv file
into my recordings directory and running the following command

cat *.sql | mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg

I use the "cat *.sql" to allow me to import a bunch of shows at once.
But now when I do this it gives me the following error

ERROR 1048 (23000) at line 3: Column 'cutlist' cannot be null

    I'm guessing the 'cutlist' is null because I've transcoded the
file and cut the commercials, does any one know a way around this?
