I would strongly recommend that you upgrade to the main branch. From
what I have seen so far the -fixes branch does not contain many of the
fixes for the hdhomerun. (For some reason the devs dont seem to backport
the changes into -fixes.) Backup your database and install the trunk
version into the same location as your -fixes install and you will not
need to deal with path issues. You can go back simply by reinstalling
the old and restoring the database.
Good luck. I am waiting for a few more months before buying mine to make
sure the bugs have been squashed. :)
