Glad to know we've been good to you. Newer versions of what? There is
nothing stopping a user from installing the version of MythTV he or she
wants, with KnoppMyth. All the deps are there (I included them for this
purpose) and there is even a script on the forum that will do this for
you. We general upgrade to a newer version of MythTV when there is a
major reason to do so.
Can you give any examples? If there are issues w/ KnoppMyth, I'd like
to know so they can be fixed.

Which makes it easy to upgrade.

Don't know. Don't see why not.

Backing up in KnoppMyth should backup all you need. From the main menu,
KnoppMyth > Backup (or sudo mythbackup). This will store what is needed
If you want to try something other than KnoppMyth, that is cool!
Options are a great things. As we've been good to you, be good to us by
providing details of the issue(s) you had/have so we can fix them.
