Mike (and all) - just a quick follow-up:

On my system, the update went smoothly.  No problems.  The switch to
Schedules Direct went fine, and despite the fact that I have three video
sources with the same lineup, mythfilldatabase worked fine (using the
--remove-new-channels option).  I now have 13 days worth of data.  I
thought there might be a problem during the first run-through - mysql hung
up - but after running mythfilldatabase the second time (after restarting
mysqld), all was copacetic.

The only glitch thus far is that the mythweather plugin appears to still
be borked.

I haven't messed with music or videos yet; news appears to be functional.

More info as I have more time to mess with this.

P.S.  Mike...be happy you're in the UK and didn't have to deal with all of
