I think it may have been a bug in mythbackend somewhere, or a problem 
with my last compile, because I tried my laptop as a frontend and it was 
doing exactly the same thing, and nothing had changed there. I svn up'ed 
the backend, recompiled, and it's working now. The strange thing is that 
absolutely nothing changed on the backend between when it was working 
and then not working.

Thanks for your help.
