Should be able to get an upgrade to 0.23 finished in under a day...  ;)

For real, though, 0.20 is /old/.  0.23 no longer uses tmdb.pl, which 
uses an old API for themoviedb.org.  And, really, you need the 
improvements in MythVideo's handling of the data returned by the script 
(and ability to handle redirects) to get the data properly.

Got another computer you can install Mythbuntu on and start configuring 
it so that it's an easy switchover?
