OK, that fot me a bit further. Now ehn I boot the client machine it comed
up in mythfrontend, and does not work. So, I exit run mythtv-setup, and
change the entries in general for teh IP address of the frontend machine
(as determined ny dhcp), and the IP address for the backend.

Then I start up mythtvfrontend again, now I can see the chanel guide, and I
can see the list of recorded shows (without previw thumbnails). But if I
try to watch either live TV, or recorded show mythtvfrontend segfaults.

Where to look next?
