Did you "upgrade" or re-install?  If you upgraded, we'll need logs
from mythbackend and mythfrontend.

If you re-installed without backing up your database so you could
restore it, you will have to run myth.rebuilddatabase.pl to put the
info back in.  It will prompt you per recording, or if you have old
guide data, it can use it.
