Well then you're just about there, clearly it is a permission  
problem. I don't know specifically where but if you look at  
everything involved I'm sure you can figure it out.

"ps aux" will show you as what user various processes are running as,  
just pipe the output through grep to shorten the list.

Running the frontend as SUID root is common in order to be able to  
have realtime priority, not such a bad thing really, but you should  
be able to run it as the mythtv user.

Let me know when you figure it out, I'm curious.
