Thanks for the info. in that case I don't think  that the issue is with the seek table, as the problem is the same with all recordings. It seems to be seeking OK, it's just taking a long time when the skip fwd button is held down, probably because it's playing after every skip instead of just showing the still frame. 

I'm guessing it's a bug, although I've searched the tickets and can't find it. Perhaps it's more common to use ffwd/rewind than holding down skip fwd/back.

I don't think the seek table is corrupted, at least CHECK TABLE reports it as OK. But perhaps it is an issue with the database upgrade from 0.21. I recall that table did crash at one point and I had to repair it. I'll check the logs and see if I can find anything untoward. 

Whether it's currently corrupt only affects current recordings.  Whether it has been corrupt indicates whether any recordings may be affected.

You need to rebuild the seektable on any recordings in which seeking doesn't work (now that you know the database table is not corrupt):
