Yep.  Basically, that's an "upgraded" backup of your old backup.

So, if you already have new recordings in your upgraded database, you 
can export your current database (with the broken information you tried 
to import from the old version backup), drop your current database, 
import your old database, run mythtv-setup (to upgrade the old 
database), then export your old database (in new version format), then 
drop your database, then either import the old database (new format) and 
do a "partial" import of the new database (getting only the new stuff 
and none of the broken old data) similarly to 
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-23.html#ss23.7 (just make sure you 
go through the resultant restore.sql and delete the old stuff that's 
already in the database) or run mc.sql, then run mythtv-setup, then 
exit, then do a "partial" import of both the new and the old (new 
format) database getting only the "right" data from each backup.
