If you are using the SysV init scripts you can uncomment the line that
cd $MYTHTV_HOME && daemon --user mythtv $binary $OPTIONS
changing the 'mythtv' after --user to whatever user you run the frontend
and comment out the line that reads:
cd $MYTHTV_HOME && daemon $binary $OPTIONS
Then just 'service mythbackend restart'

Sorry can't help you there. On the ivtv list I seem to remember something
about making sure ivtv-fb is loaded as soon after ivtv as possible in your
modules config. The ivtv list may be more help in this case.
