I just remembered one more question, although I quess it relates to how
long Mytbuntu will support 7.10
If I keep my other frontend machines up to date, will they still be able
to connect to a MythTV backend that's on 7.10?
Sorry for the sudden influx of questions to the board. I have very
limited time to spend on myth, so the time I do spend ends up being
quite focussed. Hence the 101 questions.
