Yes,
cd YOUR_VIDEO_DIR
touch .update

2004-06-19: Version 1.3.11
- The list of recordings is now kept statically in memory to avoid long delays
  when opening the "Recordings" menu. As a side effect, external
modifications to
  the video directory are no longer immediately reflected in the
"Recordings" menu.
  If a plugin manipulates the video directory in any way, it can call
the function
  Recordings.TriggerUpdate() to trigger an update of the list of recordings.
  If some external tool manipulates the video directory, it can touch the file
  '.update' in the video directory to trigger an update of the list of
recordings.
