[mythtv-users] DB Backup ?

Hello All!

I am getting ready to upgrade my be/fe to fedora 8, I have a perfectly
working system including the streamzap usb remote.  My question has to
do with the
backup of the database, if I use the following command to backup and
then the next to restore the db will I end up with duplicate entries
for the tuner cards
and sources?

mysqldump -u<myth_user> -p --extended-insert --databases
<myth_db_name> > mythdatabase.bak

mysql -u<root_user> -p <mythdatabase.bak

The last time I upgraded the system was from opensuse 10.2 to fedora 7
and I thought I used those commands to do the backup/restore and I
ended up
having to delete the sources, tuner setup and start again.  I would
prefer to just do the backup/restore and have the system working

I would appreciate any input that might shed light on this.
