Updating MythTv on Ubuntu 11.04 > 12.10 Ubuntu w/Mythtv

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have the last pre unity Ubuntu running Mythtv with 2 tuner cards on a gigabit connection.. I have a spare hard drive that would like to do a fresh install of latest ubuntu 12.10 and add mythtv to it. Almost forgot that my mythtv recorded data is not on the same box, I recently moved it to an Ubuntu Server PC across same gigabit network. My question is this: Can I backup and restore myaql database from the 11.04 and then save the mysql dump to a flash drive then restore to the fresh install. So I do not have re-setup all my devices and program recordings. Is this doable? Please a (Hardware)
