I can _sort of_ play them with Myth. On the backend, if I'm patient
enough it can be done. However, because Myth thinks that (for isntance) a 1
hour show is 29 hours long, lot's of stuff (bookmarks, moving around)
either des not work, or is so slow as to be unusbale.

I suspect that teh databse is teh root of all eviel here. My beleif is that
it was upgraded to a shema that is too new to be supported byt ewh version
the R5D1 installs.

This is not the first time this has happened, Trying t connect anewer
frontend to a older backend REALLY SHOULD NOT TRASH THE SYSTEM!
