[mythtv-users] Need database upgrade help

Hello, all.

I'm in the weekend-long process of upgrading my two backends and four
frontends (all on Gentoo).  I backed up my database following the
directions: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Fixing_Corrupt_Database_Encoding

After getting the backend updated to .22, I started to restore my
database, but it didn't work.

I managed to get my "to-uncorrupt" database loaded, but it gives
faulty information.  It doesn't show recordings I've made in a *long*

Here's my current mysql config (after I've updated to .22):

mysql  Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.84, for pc-linux-gnu (x86_64) using readline 6.0

Connection id:          106
Current database:       mythconverg
Current user:           mythtv at localhost
SSL:                    Not in use
Current pager:          stdout
Using outfile:          ''
Using delimiter:        ;
Server version:         5.0.84 Gentoo Linux mysql-5.0.84-r1
Protocol version:       10
Connection:             Localhost via UNIX socket
Server characterset:    utf8
Db     characterset:    latin1
Client characterset:    utf8
Conn.  characterset:    utf8
UNIX socket:            /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
Uptime:                 1 hour 44 min 24 sec

How can I use my mythconverg-to_uncorrupt.sql that I made on the wiki
page.  How can I get my information dumped back into my database in a
form it can use?
