The obvious (and best) answer is to delete them from the Delete  
Recordings or Watch Recordings screen. I assume you mean you want an  
automated way to go through the database and "find" your "orphaned"  
files in which case you could use http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Myth.find_orphans.pl 
  which is in your contrib directory.
