If you are marginal on Linux skills your best bet might be to wait
'till an updated MythDora is available, I know Dennis is working on it.
I don't know if there will be an upgrade path or if you will have to
re-install from scratch.
As with any system upgrade, backing up everything, especially your
database, is never a bad idea. If it were me I'd burn any video I
wanted to be sure and keep to DVDs using MythBurn.
The new OpenGL graphics will definitely not work with the PVR-350
output. You might want to give some serious thought to obtaining an
inexpensive nVidia card, unless there is something (like motherboard
limitations) that is preventing you from doing so.
