Hi Guys,

I am in the same or similar boat to Smartysmart.

I upgraded my backend yesterday from 0.24 to 0.25.

i then ran"mythtvsetup" which asked to upgrade my database to 1299, this 
appeared to work fine and i was able to access the mythtvsetup menus.

After i exited the mythtvsetup tool and try to relaunch it straight away, i 
would receive the same error as above.

"MythTV Database has a never TV schema (1300) than expected (1299)"

hrm, i am clueless but thought i would just share.

I originally tried this on a new opensuse 12.1 with my DB ported across.
but since i received the above error i tried to upgrade the DB while still on 
the original opensuse 11.4 box.
