The MythTv documentation provides instructions on how to move your
database to a new machine here:

This essentially performs a backup and restore, which is what I
believe you want to do.

Other advice?

You should plan to migrate both boxes at the same time.  Having the
frontend and backend on different distributions makes it very
difficult to keep the two at the same version.  And if the version is
different, the front and back ends will not be able to communicate.
