 If you are using the same hostname, then you are implicitly telling MythTV
 that this is the same hardware.  This is not "rafts" of problems-- if you
 have changed the recorders, then yes, it's your responsibility to remove
 them, for which there is a UI (mythtv-setup).  If you have changed video
 hardware then yes, you need to change the video playback profile,
 something for which there is also a UI.  If you have changed the storage
 group paths, you can fix that in the UI too.  If you don't want to be
 stuck with the baggage of the hostname, then don't pick the same hostname.

 In essence, if you tell MythTV that the host is the same, and it's not,
 then we provide UIs to change it to be appropriate for the new hardware.

 In essence, this is just an excerpt from the last ticket, and still a
 feature request.  If you feel that myth "needs" this functionality, then
 you are going to need to provide a patch for it, unless one of the
 developers decides to take it on as their own task.  I can see how the
 ability to remove settings for a retired frontend or backend might be
 useful, but it's by no means mandatory and not a bug.  If you would like
 to attach a patch to this ticket it can be reopened.
