figure out what your hostname setting should be and send this to
your mysql server: ( thie example assumes your front end is called
larry )

delete FROM settings where value like '%Resolution%' and hostname = 'larry';

... before running this, maybe do
select * from settings where value like '%Resolution%';
so you can see what is set up already.

Once these are gone and you re-start mythfrontend, the settings will
be re-populated.
