The precompiled versions all use --prefix=/usr and the default for the
source is --prefix=/usr/local so change your cofigure settings and
recompile. You cannot use the frontend without the backend so no to your
question. Of course they can still watch tv until you are ready to
upgrade then stop the service, upgrade then run mythtv-setup to update
your database to the current version. Then you should be able to restart
the backend with no problems.
