Yes. The /usr/share/mythtv/contrib/myth.rebuilddatabase.pl script.
Easiest way (maybe not the best) is to rename your mpg/avi file to something
like <chanid>_<starttime>_<endtime>.avi, stick it into the storage area
(eg, /mnt/store) then run
A sample name would be
[The channel IDs will vary from system to system]
It'll go through any videos which are "unattached" (ie, not in the database)
and ask if you want to import it. It'll then do a commflag rebuild to
generate the seektable, and that should be it.
