no problem - i dont claim to know everything, so if im wrong then it's good
to be corrected or advised down a better route :)

i'll hold out on implementing those ext4 parameters - if they work then
great (i'll shoot off to google once i've written this to research more),
and it would certain save around an hour reinstalling mythtv as i'd backup
existing DB first, and simply restore it on the new build.
power tends to be fairly stable where i live, so that tends not to be much
of a concern.

thanks for the input - it's appreciated :)
