I'd just like to point out, for those who are so dogged about where
questions get asked, that I was told by a member of #mythtv-users that
it was fine to run mythtv-setup at the same time as mythbackend; the
only issue being that mythbackend needs to be restarted to reflect any

If this really is bad advice, I think it should be noted by the
aforementioned people what "help" is available, and that the
determination of some particular developers to elevate themselves above
others in terms of help given (and, it seems, all other things,) is
detrimental to not only the user community, but the mythtv community as
a whole.

There is too much ego here.
