I'm trying to build a "test bed" for this using the latest SVN,
however I'm hitting a few brick walls.  I've got a 'farm' of mythtv
equipment all running 0.20.  My main backend is not a unichrome
system, so isolating 1 machine to upgrade/patch is not easy.  I
created a network booting setup for one of the unichrome machines and
find that easy to backup/restore things from, but I am not sure how to
replicate the required entries into the database to carry over 2 to 4
HD recordings to the test system and have it recognize them as a
standalone setup.  Any hints?  If I haven't painted a clear picture:
I have 1 system with all my 'recordings' on it.  My frontend only
system is a unichrome and I've got other unichrome's available (all
unichrome Pro systems).  How do I replicate the parts of the database
(or rather, which parts of the database should I be replicating on the
other system) on a completely seperated system running SVN
(MYTH_PROTO_VERSIONS is one reason I can't just upgrade 1 system and
'test') to have it function as a standalone backend/frontend machine
with 2 or 3 high def clips to playback as test clips?
