Nope, just one. setup General, first page "Master Server IP address".
If this is then the slave backend would think that it is
supposed to connect to it self so it has to be the real IP of the

The other requirement is that the slave backend needs to connect
to the same mysql server as the master. This means that the
/etc/mysql/my.cnf has to have the "#" removed from before
skip-networking, grant network access for the mythtv database
user and the mysql.txt needs the hostname and other connect info
to talk to the correct mysql server. However, if you had been
using this machine as a frontend already and added a capture
card to use it as a backend also (hard to tell from you message =),
then this must have been correct already for the frontend to work.
