Just realized I should probably clarify.  After you upgrade the database 
to 0.24-fixes schema format (by running mythtv-setup--but no need to 
change anything in it once it finishes, just run it and exit), you'll 
want to back up the 0.24-fixes database.

Then you can restore the 0.24-fixes database onto the final hardware/OS 
install that you will use for 0.25-fixes with:

mythconverg_restore.pl --drop_database --create_database --filename 

(where the 0.24-fixes backup will be a 1264 version)
