Updating Existing Recordings to a UNC Path

I am full of them today. So I am finally upgrading from a stand alone server configuration to a server/client config. I am having issues with comskip not functioning on the client and have discovered this is because my recording directories are local and not UNC paths. So here is what I did:
1. Shut down server UI and service
2. Backed up and wiz.bin on server
3. Restarted SageTV service and UI on server
4. Changed the recording directories from local paths (eg. d:\TV Shows) to UNC paths (eg. \\sagetv\TV Shows) per the sticky here.
5. Shut down UI and service on server
6. Edited file to advanced_video_file_recovery=true
7. Restarted SageTV service and UI on server
After all this, Sage still says the old recordings are located on "d:\TV Shows\*.mpg". The instructions in the FAQ sticky are a little unclear since they assume you are moving your old recordings to a new directory rather than just updating to a UNC path and leaving the recordings where they are. I would really like to update the old/archived recording paths so I can retain comskip playback. Any suggestions? Thanks.
