I'm pretty sure that there is 0.21 for 7:10...

I did have a couple of issues with the update... the main one being that the
input table doubled up entries for the a pvr150 card which you couldn't see
in the UI but you could in the DB (This caused recordings to fail), had to
fix it by manually deleting the entry in mysql.

0.21 has recording groups as well which will make your second HDD easier to

It will keep all your recordings, schedules etc intact

Multirec seems to work very nicely... its worth it ;)

Note: you could also do a distro update to hardy 8.04 (general upgrade
