So I was setting up another MythTV frontend box for my backend server
running 0.19, and I accidentally grabbed the latest SVN snapshot
rather than the 0.19 branch. The remote frontend did all kinds of
interesting things to my backend. And I did not back up my database
(of course). That resulted in a chain of events that ended in me
throwing my hands in the air and upgrading the backend to the latest
Besides, I really like that cool fade thing MythTV has going between
Anyway, LiveTV broke. Yet, scheduled records still work! Here is a
timely portion of the log:

that can be resolved with the right magic incantation.
Any advice on surgically repairing my installation so that LiveTV
