I'd need the output of your restore to tell.  You did do a proper 
restore, right--i.e. you restored a MythTV 0.22 database backup into a 
MythTV 0.22 database schema (or a MythTV 0.21 database backup into a 
MythTV 0.21 database schema)?

If not, you need to redo your partial restore correctly (as your data 
got mangled by MySQL--and, your database schema may have, too, depending 
on certain other factors).

some suggestions.

/me makes a note to have the restore script check DB Schema Version for 
partial restores
