Yeah, for MPEG-2 recordings you typically get 2 entries per second.

The recodedseek table grows linearly with the amount of recorded video 
on your system.  The rest of the database tends to be pretty much steady 

Note, also, that MythTV automatically cleans up the recordedseek (and 
all other recorded* tables).  So, if you run mythbackend, your table is 
as clean as it could possibly be.
