Appears to be related to the database problem, as the mythbackend logs
on the FE/BE system report problems accessing the channel database
("can't tune to channel ''" and other things pointing to errors in the
database). I tried going in to mythtv-setup on the front end and
completely redoing everything: no joy (but I do know not to run
"mythfilldatabase" on the FE). I did set the initial channel for the
card to a valid one, still gives the error about "can't tune to channel
''". Still can't change channels on the local card. If I hit 'Y' to
switch to one of the cards in the Master BE system, it works fine. So
it's the backend process on the FE/BE system that is having trouble.
I'll work on this more in the morning.
