If you update your copy of mythconverg_restore.pl (by downloading a new 
copy as explained at 
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_Backup_and_Restore ), you'll get a 
better error message:

The argument you supplied for the database information file is invalid.
If you were trying to specify a backup filename, please use the --directory
and --filename arguments.
