I recently recorded a TV show that lasts for an hour, but when I start playback the OSD shows that the show is 3:43:26 long. When I first jump ahead, mythtv seeks to 2:43:26. The playback is normal, but the time is offset by this hour and 43 minutes and seeking is very slow. There is nothing relevant in the logs as far as I can tell.

This happens to roughly half of my recordings. For some reason mythtv thinks that the recordings start at 2:34:26. The starting time is the same for all messed up recordings.
