 It has been locked because it was not a bug and got re-opened.  MythTV
 stores many settings pre-profile, and if you do not specify the name to
 use through the 'LocalHostName' parameter in mysql.txt, MythTV will
 default to using the name returned by `hostname`.  As you have configured
 MythTV to listen only on on that profile (hostname), either
 through intent or lack of action, it will do as told.

 To resolve this, either go into `mythtv-setup` and tell MythTV to listen
 somewhere you can access from the network, or specify a profile to use in
 ~/.mythtv/mysql.txt with 'LocalHostName' such that the IP selection is
 unset, causing `mythfrontend` to default to listening on all available
 private network addresses.
