You have to have mythudprelay running, I always have it running as a 
daemon. It listens on port 4958 and rearranges whatever it sees to a 
format that myth likes/requires and rebroadcasts that on port 6949 
which is what the frontend listens to. All the info is in the 
contrib/mythnotify directory. Search callerid in the dev archives for 
the rationale. I only skimmed it but I believe the why is there and the 
how is in the mythnotify directory.
