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.
