If you have not been running trunk, then you need to consider very
carefully before making that plunge.  While trunk works, it is FAR
less polished (right now) than 0.21-fixes.  In my experience,
mythbackend is just as stable as in trunk as it was in 0.21-fixes.
The frontend is a moving target, though.

The H.264 support in trunk has been changed quite a bit since 0.21,
and will likely solve your problem with BBC HD.

You can make a backup of your DB and give it a try if you want.  Or
you can wait for 0.22 to be released, but that is probably still a few
months away.  Guess it depends on how addicted you have become to High
Def ;-)

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
