This is the 4th bullet in the Special Instructions of the 0.26 release notes.
It was the 2nd 'til a few minutes ago. I points to a Wiki with details.

I just added a warning to run a backup *before* doing the upgrade, as the user
who will be doing it (which might be mythtv or $USER [or, gag, root].) Picking
the right user for the test is critical, as the backup program uses information
in the .mythtv directory of the user running it. Hope that makes sense.

And the a new note after the one above mentions your experience. The conversion to
UTC requires changes to timestamps stored in the database. For example, starttime
and endtime in "recordedseek","recordedmarkup","recordedrating" and "recordedcredits.
