[mythtv] Back and frontend on same machine, mysql on another

sorry if this has been discussed before but I don't think this is covered
either in the HOWTO nor in the FAQ and searching the maillist archives is,
quite frankly, a pain in the ass.
I want to run mythbackend and mythfrontend on the same machine, but have the
mysql server on a different machine. The mythweb is on the same machine that
runs mysql and also I want to put a nfs-exported disk to be mounted on the
first machine. The mythweb and the nfs part is done. I've also changed
mysql.txt to list the correct host, created the correct db/tables and granted
the correct privileges, created correct .my.cnf for mythtv user. Typing
mysql I connect to the remote mysql server and I can perform INSERTs and
SELECTs and DELETEs, so I know the mythtv user can connect to it.
However, trying to start mythbackend gives me the can't connect to db message.
I'd appreciate any and all help.
