It's the version on Google Play, 1.10.1. The above link yields "file not 
found."  New to Android, so I'm not sure how to manually download and 
install the newer package from Github.

To be precise, it's a fresh install of Mythbuntu 12.04.3.  I *thought* 
this would be the most recent backend version, but I checked and in fact 
it's 0.25.2.  I looked at Synaptic and it has some updates, but only for 
0.25, and "mark for upgrade" is greyed out.  How do I get upgraded to 
the latest?

A related question I've wondered about before: On updates, there is a 
MythTV item, then a bunch of items for MythTV components.  Am I correct 
to assume that if I update the main item it updates all the components?

My interface doesn't have vertical ellipses, but I found it on Github.  
Not sure where the mysql select they mention is the be executed.  On the 
Android app I suppose, but not sure how to modify that.

Strange.  I never got the posting sent back to me (option is selected in 
list preferences), but did for this message.  Maybe gmail was hiding it
