[mythtv-users] Importing Old TV files

I recently did a completely fresh install of Mythtv Backend.  This 
included making a new database.

I have come across some files of some recorded TV programs from my old 
installation which I have copied to the video directory of the new 

Mythtv sees the files and can play them back, but when I try and skip 
forward a few minutes by pressing the right arrow cursor key (like I do 
with the recorded TV programs), it comes up "Searching ..." and 
eventually runs off the end of the recording.

Is there a better way to get at these recordings, and is there anyway to 
just tell mythtv to skip forward a few minutes
