To use Vbox multirecord available from mythtv 29, you need to rescan
(using mythtv-setup) VBox channels, this will create the appropriate
data in the dtv_multiplex table of mythconverg database. The required
data is extracted from VBox data when channel scanning is done (using a
Vbox api call). The normal Vbox playback URLs do not contain this data
