Thanks for all the help. I compiled a patched version of mythfrontend
and updated my backend database; unfortunately it reported a protocol
mismatch so I'm afraid I had to stop there.

However, embarassingly enough I think I found the problem. Working on
the theory the seek table may have been wrong I did a quick
mythcommflag --rebuild -f /recordings/rugby.mpg and the problem fixed

I'm not sure why this happenned to two separate recordings- hopefully
I won't have to rebuild each time
