You don't want myth.rebuilddatabase.pl.  If anything, you want 

However, I have a feeling the problem is in your mythtv-setup Storage 
Directories configuration and/or file system permissions.  Remember that 
the user running mythbackend will need read and execute on every 
directory in the path leading to the actual recordings directories and 
read, write, and execute on the actual recordings directories.

You definitely want to post some backend logs /before/ trying something 
like myth.rebuilddatabase.pl--which doesn't work and puts invalid data 
in the database.
