[mythtv-users] Copy Mythbackend from one machine to another

I did something similar when I went from gentoo to ubuntu. I:-

* Set up the new PC with the SAME version of myth
* Copied the database
* Copied the media directory and the /home/mythtv directory.
* Made sure mysql.txt to new username/password..
* Copied the media across

It was a while ago.  One thing that may help is if you make sure the
new PC has the same name.

It would be good for you to make detailed notes during this (I lunched
this, sorry) and post it here.
