[mythtv-users] Upgrade question

I have two servers for web mail and mythtv, one active and one a spare.
Every time a new version of opensuse comes out I install on the spare
and swap them.

During the current swap, I want to upgrade to 0.22. I have my newly
installed machine with 0.22, and with the database, video files and
config (.mythtv directory) from the old server. From what I've read
it looks to me like I could just run mythtvsetup and the db schemas
would be updated, but I have a problem: the new machine has a
different hostname.

I wondered about using mythconverge_restore.pl --change_hostname
before running mythtvsetup, but then I'd be using the 0.22
mythtconverge_restore on a 0.21 database. Is that ok?

The other possibility is to find out what mythtvsetup calls to
upgrade the database, and call it directly, then change hostname.
Can you call the upgrade script directly?
