 The mythconverg_backup.pl script is meant to be used as a general-purpose
 backup script for the MythTV database.  It is often used to backup a
 database before transferring it to a newly-built system or before
 restoring it to a system that's upgraded to a new OS version, not just for
 last-ditch, "I lost everything but am prepared for days of rebuilding
 work" scenarios.  Therefore it is designed to get as much of the
 information as possible from the existing database.

 Note, too, that any backup of the MythTV system should be performed when
 the MythTV system is shut down (all backends, all frontends, and all other

 backups while the system is running should, at minimum, do their best to
 schedule the backup when the MythTV system is as idle as possible (not
 recording and, as much as possible, not modifying anything in the

 If you want to skip the recordedseek table backup on your system's
 backups, you may do so by specifying the --ignore-table option in a MySQL
 Option File--ideally one that's only used for that backup run, but at

 more details.
