Note, also, that unless you explicitly told MythTV not to, it created a 
database backup when it upgraded your 0.23 database to trunk's version.  
The automatic backup would have been placed into a directory in your DB 
Backups storage group (if you've defined one), or--more likely--in one 
of the directories in your Default storage group (i.e. your recordings 

So, just find that backup and restore it ( 
), and you're good to go.
