As it turns out, you were correct.  When that value is pulled from the 
database by the frontend, the default value is 'localhost'.  If no value 
is set in the database, or the connection is lost it will use that 
improper setting.  While that is a problem, there is an underlying cause 
that is the deeper issue.

Your logs state that your mysql server has 'gone away'.  Either your 
mysql server has crashed, or you have an unreliable network.  MythTV 
does not provide support for either of those issues.

The other possibility we came up with is that you are running a separate 
mysql server on your frontend, and having it connect to that instead.  
All systems in a mythtv setup must connect to the same shared database.  
If you are running mysql on that frontend, please disable it and 
reconfigure your frontend to connect to the proper database.
