All I've done in the past is "touch" the filename. It can be done from web 
interface. The actual filename can be obtained from the logs on the web

Subject: [mythtv-users] Recordings won't delete

I had to rebuild my system, and subsequently restored my database from a
backup.  Somewhere along the way I deleted some recordings from my
recording directory.  The recordings are still listed as recorded
programs in the frontend, but of course when I try watch them I get a
message that states the files could not be found.  When I try to delete
them, the recorded program disappears from the listings but then
reappears after a few seconds.

I've tried running myth.rebuilddatabase.pl and optimize_mythdb.pl.  Both
ran successfully, but they didn't fix the problem. Suggestions?
