When you upgraded from 0.21 to 0.24, the amount of metadata MythVideo 
handles was increased significantly.  IMHO, the best way to handle that 
upgrade from MythVideo 0.21 to 0.24 is to remove all MythVideo metadata 
(point your MythVideo directories to an empty directory location and 
rescan, then reconfigure the proper directories) and rescan.  This 
approach also has the benefit of better handling any TV videos you may have.

I'm guessing at this point your metadata doesn't match up properly with 
your actual recordings, so what you see on screen isn't necessarily 
right for the actual videos "underneath".
