In current 0.19-fixes and 0.20-fixes, mythfrontend will allow you to 
delete recordings even if the file doesn't exist.  Using mythfrontend to 
do the deletes will ensure they're deleted correctly.  Not using 
mythfrontend, you're likely to leave a /lot/ of extra data about the 
recording in the database.

Are you saying there are no recordings listed in mythfrontend's Watch 
Recordings/Delete Recordings screens?  Have you verified you're not 
using a filter or looking at the wrong recording group?  Perhaps some of 
these are LiveTV recordings (and you'll need to change the recording 
group to LiveTV to see them so you can explicitly delete them).
