Right.  After the upgrade the above information is fine.  Basically, 
with 0.21-fixes and below, the server configuration must be done a 
specific way.  With trunk, Myth works regardless of configuration.


I watched the 1 recording that was made last night and deleted it. I then
actioned the procedure on the wiki page and restored my old backup with the
fixes and the update went as it should have.

Thanks for the help.
