or mythtv-setup.  As a matter of fact, when upgrading past a bunch of
version numbers, you should /really/ consider running mythtv-setup and
checking all the settings before running mythbackend (and, since a
frontend needs a master backend, probably shouldn't run mythfrontend
until you've got mythbackend running).  Then, start up mythbackend,
mythfrontend, and go into the frontend settings and verify that all the
new settings' defaults are appropriate (or modify them).
