I started to have this same problem last night.  I have four systems,
all started experiencing this issue. 

I don't see where there was ever an answer to this yet.  Anyone have any
ideas on this?  All three systems are the exact same version.

I've googled this problem until my fingers hurt, but every problem
similar to mine goes unanswered.

I just installed MythTV 0.19 on a fresh Gentoo install, and trying to
watch TV gives me a blank screen for about five seconds, and then an
error in the console:

Connecting to backend server: (try 1 of 5)
ReadStringList timeout (quick).
Unexpected response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION:
TV: Attempting to change from None to None

I also noticed that when I go through the menus (changing settings and
such), the program stops responding for a while when I change screens.
Everything is the same version according to their output,
0.19.20060121-2. The frontend and backend are both on the same server,
and I don't have any fancy drive configurations. Does anyone have any
