[mythtv-users] Starting with a {mostly} clean slate (re: mysql and what to keep)

So I just moved from one part of the country to another, and I'm going
to have to redo channel setups, etc, which is the easy part.

I'd like to take this opportunity, however, since it's summer, there's
nothing on, to start with a mostly clean myth installation. However, I
would like to keep the history of what has been recorded before, etc,
for dupes.

Couple of questions:

1. Which Table do I need to keep to preserve the history of what
recorded before?

2. Which table(s) do I need to keep to preserve the list of EXISTING
recordings in the "now playing" list?

3. Any other suggestions for tables I may want to keep? I'll be
obviously keeping a backup, but my intention is to start with a clean
DB and merge the "preserved" tables in.

Thanks in advance for any sage advice.
