I am replacing a pretty unreliable mythbuntu 10.04 install with a brand new ubuntu 11.04 + mythtv install.

Currently I have them both installed on separate drives as I wanted to make sure that I at least kept one working system.

Can anyone tell me what the best way to transfer the recordings and the recording rules from the only drive to the new drive.

I don't want to take channel info that that is one of the things that was borked before and is now correct. All I want is the recordings and, recording rules.

Can I use the backup and restore scripts? are the database schema the same? can I select not to restore the channel info?

Thanks for any advice...
