Is there a program or a good script that can backup all entries (like you tube playlists) that have been manually entered? I've got a ton of entries and would be a pain to have to add them manually after I install newest Mythbuntu 9.04

The streams table should be backed up when you run the MythTV backup:

Alternately, you could backup the streams table only by doing:

$ mysqldump -u <myth_user> -p --extended-insert --databases <myth_db_name> --table streams > mythstream.bak
Password: <myth_password>

After that, you'll want to back up /usr/share/mythtv/mythstream and the ~/.mythtv/mythstream/ directory for your MythTV user.
