Bruce - that worked like a charm!  Thank you very much!

btw, doing this will not work:
$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend --nosched

So what I did is copy /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend to 
and then edited /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend.nosched to append '--nosched' to 
the OPTIONS string.

Here is a diff so you can see what I mean:

[root at mythtv init.d]# diff mythbackend mythbackend.nosched
< OPTIONS="$OPTIONS --daemon --logfile /var/log/mythtv/$prog.log --pidfile 
> OPTIONS="$OPTIONS --daemon --logfile /var/log/mythtv/$prog.log 
--pidfile /var/run/$prog.pid --nosched"

So now, when my cable is out, I run:
[root at mythtv init.d]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/mythbackend.nosched start
Starting mythbackend:                                      [  OK  ]
