Although, if the data is not showing in the recordings list (i.e. if
it's truly an "information recovery" question), it's not in the recorded
table. Therefore, something like:
SELECT title, subtitle, description FROM oldrecorded WHERE chanid=1018
AND starttime='2006-07-16 21:00';
will allow you to query your previously recorded shows.
Also, check out myth.rebuilddatabase.pl in the contrib directory. It
does this automatically.
