Yeah, I read about some UTC issues, but I also thought that they were
addressed in recent builds.  I also tried doing a query directly in
mysql for "chanid" and "starttime" values that are passed to
generateProjectXCutlist(), and it does show a recording for me. I didn't
dig into the internals of DB.searchRecorded(), though, which is why I
use the workaround.

The mytharchive package I'm using is (MythBuntu 12.04):

OK, looking at mythburn.py I see that ProjectX 0.91 or later is
required.  I suppose I also assumed that if Ubuntu packages mytharchive,
they would also package a projectx version that is required by it.  I have:

I don't blame you.  It's likely that if I had a more recent (supported)
version of projectx, my patch would have been much more trivial.  And
for the very same reason (what I have now works) I'm unlikely to muck
with it more.  In hindsight, I should have been working with a supported
projectx version from the start, but what's done is done.  :)
