I just suggested that as a simple and probably harmless thing to try, 
not through any real understanding of what might be happening; my script 
has used it thousands of times. But ISTR there _is_ a difference between 
the chanid, starttime call  and the infile one.   Maybe it's just the 
paths they use. chanid starttime _does_ rebuild the seektable - at least 
for recordings not suffering from some unknown problem! 
1009_20101212215800.mpg  translates to 1009  20101212215800 :-)
