You could, far more easily:
1) Backup 0.23 database on old server
2) Copy recordings & videos to same directory structure on new server
3) Restore the 0.23 database on new server running 0.24 (using a /full/
restore, as at
and update host name, if you didn't use the same one (as below).
When you start up mythtv-setup (or mythbackend--but I /highly/ recommend
using mythtv-setup) for 0.24-fixes, it will upgrade the database schema
in place, so no need to use the old server to upgrade it.

Very good point--and one you don't want to forget.

Using the same name is definitely the best/easiest approach.
