Do you mean your recording history?  That's not in recordedmarkup.

That said, the right way to move recording history from one machine to 
another (and the right way to move recordings from one machine to 
another) is to move the actual MythTV /system/ from one machine to 
another.  You do a complete backup of the database, then restore that 
backup onto the new system, then start up mythtv-setup to upgrade the 
database to the new version.

If you just copied over recordings, you threw away all of your history.
