I have an existing server which is FC14. My repo is ATrpms and I think
support for FC14 may have terminated so I'm stuck on MythTV 0.24. I'm
looking at building a new virtual backend but that will be running
0.25 which has a different database to 0.24, so I guess a backup and
restore to the new backend is out - is that correct?

If you do this won't you end up with a whole load of unfriendly
filenames like 2576_20120713193000.mpg? Is there a way of converting
these to more friendly filenames? I know about mythlink.pl, but it
creates friendly filenames as symbolic links - is there a script that
will rename the actual recording files?
