Part of the reason I'm upgrading is the quirky problems I currently 
have.  The main reason, though, is I'm running FC7 which has not been 
supported for a while.  I figure I'll give it a try just exporting the 
tables I think I'll need.  If something doesn't work (or I still have 
quirky problems) I'll just dump the DB and load from the full dump.

Here's what I've decided to export:

mysqldump -u mythtv -p -t mythconverg record recorded \
oldrecorded recordedprogram recordedrating \
recordedmarkup recordedseek channel  videosource > fc7_mythtables.sql

I'll post the results.
