If you're using mysqldump to get a database backup, the above two lines will
be overwritten when you restore the database. Assuming you're using the same
mountpoints for your recordings/videos as you do now, you won't need to do
this. Similarly with restoring capture cards, if they have the same /dev
files, you shouldn't need to run setup.

If you do run setup, make sure you've restored the database first.

I usually like to take a copy of /etc/X11/xorg.conf, just in case I can't
get the video card drivers to install. Also, I like to copy /var/www/html,
mainly for mythweb (which will get regenerated when you install it), but
occasionally I store other files in there too.
