To achieve that, you can either
a) move the entire DB (from 0.20) to the new machine, let mythtv-setup
automatically upgrade it to the currently installed database schema,
and then extract the tables you want to save (instructions for this
are on the MythTV wiki). Once you have the tables updated and dumped,
you can drop the database, and then recreate it using the mc.sql
script. Running mythtv-setup at this stage will update the database
schema to the same version as your dumped tables, which can then be
re-imported. The result of this is you get a pristine database
containing only the old data you want to keep.

b) Do an in situ upgrade of the database, and then move it to the new
database host. If you want to keep all of your old settings, this is a
good option - just remember to take plenty of database backups so that
you can easily restore good data if anything 'bad' happens. If you
want to extract certain tables (as mentioned above) and then drop the
updated database on the new host and recreate it from scratch, you
should also end up with a clean database containing your old
Things will get much easier after the move to SQLite sometime in the future :)
