Hmm, and maybe I did change the user too.  I changed the startup of the 
backend in /etc/rc.local


sudo -HP -u username mythbackend >>/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log &

mythbackend --daemon --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log --pidfile 

so now it is running as root instead <doh!>

I will try it with
sudo -HP -u username mythbackend --daemon --logfile 
/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log --pidfile /var/run/mythbackend.pid
