[mythtv-users] myth.rebuilddatabase.pl recovers recordings with truncated playtimes

I used myth.rebuilddatabase.pl to recover some orphaned recordings, but
when I try to play back those recordings they all have very short
playtimes even though the file sizes are correct.
For instance, a 59:01 minute show will have a displayed 2:17 length and
Myth will only play the recording to that truncated length. I notice
that myth.rebuilddatebase.pl plugs in "endtime" and "progend" database
fields set to "1969-12-31 17:00:00" on recovered shows, so I fixed
that... but it did not lengthen the time displayed via "i" during
playback or the length the program will actually play.
So where is Myth getting the value that determines how long a recorded
I have used mythcommflag to rebuild the seek table and that did NOT
change anything. I suspect that mythcommflag may be the problem, because
if I copy the files to the "mythvideo" and play them from there, the
lengths are correct. Of course, seeking does not work or is horribly
slow and there is no commercial flagging.
Thanks in advance.
