As often seems to be the way with software, I've installed and
configured mythtv-0.20-fixes only to find that it's not quite the way
I wanted it (I've been using/fiddling with mythtv since around 0.7, but
this is my first DVB install) so I was going to set up all the capture
cards again anyhow.  If I delete all the capture cards from 0.20-fixes,
then update the software to the multirec branch and reinstall the cards
should that work, or am I still going to need to do some DB updates

(If all else fails, or if it's easier, I'm happy to archive off all my
outstanding recordings and start with a brand new database.  All I
really care about keeping are my recording schedules.)
