As a followup, if the zip contains just the update that should be applied as new updates come out, is there a recommended way to merge the users SageTV7.xml file with the one in the ZIP? Does a configured system store any custom settings in the SageTV7.xml file?

I'm hoping to have a first draft of the walkthrough up tonight, but will probably run through it a few times to see if I can streamline and simplify it.

Thanks for the great downloads and the hard work!
On Linux the .deb (or .tgz depending on how you install it) contains everything that is needed to run sage, including the updated Sage.jar, STV, etc. If using the .deb (which is recommended) means that updates will done using the apt-get installer.

The .zip is mainly for Windows users that are applying this on top of their existing installs.
