Your other replies may not have allowed for this file being in nuv/mp3
format. It's many years since I saw a file like that and I don't know
the state of MythTV's support for it now. Maybe vlc could play it.
And IIRC playback isn't usually dependent on the seektable - it's mainly
used to help seeking.
