I just recently migrated my mythfrontend & backend (on the same
machine) to Ubuntu and have the exact same problem. I think it was a
permission problem on my computer.
I have a hard drive mounted at /video. This mount point had
drwxrwxrw- root root /video
I changed the group to mythtv:
$ sudo chgrp mythtv video
drwxrwxrw- root mythtv /video
I can now see my shows and they are no longer reporting as missing.
