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

I already cleaned out the old shows with mythfrontend. I used the SVN 
version of myth.rebuilddatabase.pl to import the orphaned recordings. 
Some imported fine, but others mostly the HDTV shows recorded via 
HDHomerun ones all have short lengths.

Does anyone know where MythTV gets it's idea of a show's recorded length?

Thx in advance,
