It sounds like your seek table was destroyed/corrupted in your upgrade  
and now only new recordings have proper entries in the seek table. You  
can try rebuilding your seektable for a recording and see if it helps.  
If so, rebuild them all. Maybe not the fastest way, but certainly the  

mythcommflag --help and mythcommflag --rebuild should get you started.
