[mythtv-users] Backup software

And I think this is the winner. I have the .deb files that I built for the headers & kernel image. I put those on a memory stick. I have the CD to reinstall mythbuntu. True, having to build the entire diseq tree each time and do all the connections is annoying (plus winding up with a weird collection of tuners in mythweb), but in an hour I should be up and running again now. 

Thanks for all the suggestions. I might still investigate clonezilla for other backup related needs.

    Something like this I would not "back up". I would make sure I have the
means to rebuild it. That would include the original install media and any 
packages you might have installed.

    I would only back up the stuff that's not part of the OS install. That's 
pretty small and would likely fit on the master backend with no trouble.
