I used the following command to  collect log info
mythfrontend -v all > /home/ben/Desktop/mythlog.txt
however when closed the remote FE down I was left with this message on

mythtv: could not connect to socket
mythtv: Connection refused
lirc_init failed for mythtv, see preceding messages
Decoder error. DecoderMAD: Failed to open input.  Error 5.
Decoder error. DecoderMAD: Failed to open input.  Error 5.
