Hi Paul,
             As you have determined 0.25 frontend will not interrogate a 
0.24 (and below) backend. My mythbuntu distribution automagically 
updated the backend database to the new format (both on the same host 
PC). I discovered the incompatibility after playing with the mythtv 
addon for xbmc (on an ATV2), which does not yet talk with 0.25.

Sound via HDMI does work. Let me know if you need the settings.
