The seektables used by mythfrontend for recordings playback are stored 
in a different place from the seektables used by MythVideo for video 

When you delete the recording through mythfrontend, it will delete the 
seektable for that recording, then you'll need to rebuild the seektable 
for the video (copy of the recording) using the --video argument.

There's currently no way to say, "Move this recording and its associated 
seektable for use in MythVideo."  And, since MythVideo is currently 
really frontend only, such functionality is not likely to be written 
(though work is in progress to allow the backend to manage MythVideo 
videos through storage groups, so...).
