OK, but when I go to mythtv.org, click on download, and download the  
package there, it's 0.20 not -fixes, or 0.20a?  Just as well, I'm  
having problems with the OS X frontend not running on Panther and  
someone had to compile a special version of the OS X frontend for me  
- I don't want to risk breaking it all with another protocol change.

The wiki seems to say that 0.20.1 isn't released:


Note "This is an unreleased development version"

Thanks for your help anyway!

Cheers - Piers
