I'll do that, but I have a supplementing question regarding the mysql 
database.....and accessing old recordings etc

All my programs where recorded in California and I now live in Denmark. 
When I moved here I had a problem that all the recorded shows 
disappeared  from Myth when I changed my location/timezone from 
US-westcoast to EU-Copenhagen. The only way to get tham back was when I 
reset the clock/timezone to US-westcoast.....

Now that I live and want to record here in Denmark (using the updated 
installation), I still want to watch the US recordings.... How do I do 
Can I just backup the database, reinstall everything and update some 
fields in the database as well as the location/timezone and have this 
work?... How do I do that?

Would I be better off to make a reinstall as you describe based on my 
RH9 install or should I go for a fresh FC2 install?
