Have you been through the update script manually to make sure the DB
has the correct new format (or removed the column 'dvb_hw_recorder'
from table 'capturecard' and let the update script run again? If
that's the only place the script is failing, the update might proceed
OK. If it complains of other SQL errors, look at the error and update
the DB as appropriate.
