[ubuntu-mythtv] Accessing recordings from previous installation (0.24)

I recently rebuilt my mythbuntu 11.10 (mythtv 0.24) backend. I have 
recordings from my previous host (also from 0.24) stored on a separate 
drive (/mnt/stor1/recordings) which no longer show up as recorded programs.

I've changed the default storage location in the backend to point to 
this directory, and new recordings are going there, but the old ones 
aren't showing up anywhere.

I found the http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Myth_video_scan.py script that is 
for 0.24, but when I run it as the mythtv user, It simply says 
"Performing Scan ..." then ends without adding anything.

My python skills are not quite good enough that I can tell what the 
problem is. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get this script to 
work with my configuration?
