sorry barking up the wrong tree. try
that will tell you the path that mythbackend resides in, it sould be
something like /usr/local/bin/mythbackend
I don't use the gui to start and stop services.
the other thing is if mythbackend is generating an error you might
have a log if you have not modified mythbackend file in /etc/init.d
directory you might have a log file /tmp/
it might tell you why mythbackend fails at boot up. also check your
/var/log/messages file for any errors.
