It's destructive because there are numerous spots which rely on the
contents of those fields to be an absolute path-- notably the services API
and MythWeb.  So those things won't work, and no application built against
the API will work.

It also means that your database will be broken when actual Channel SG
support arrives, a thing which will be coming, probably in .26-- but your
content will be broken, and it will be because you manually manipulated
your DB.

Seriously.  Don't do this.  You're breaking existing parts of MythTV,
breaking upcoming functionality, and it's definitely *not* non-destructive.
 Given how many tickets you open, it's very hard to trust that your system
is reliable, and thus hard to want to work on your tickets, when you're
hacking things together like this and ignoring knowledgeable advice to the
contrary.  How am I to know that the many bugs you open aren't simply you
deciding to do something you feel isn't destructive?
