Thanks for explaing.

Well, will it work with a really old MythTV backend? I still run MythTV 0.20 (0.20.20060828-3, schema version 1158) on a FreeBSD 6.4 machine
(because I haven't been able to make newer versions of MythTV work with my PVR-500 tuner card).

How do I test it? Is it as simple as adding your patch to multimedia/xbmc?
