Very cool, but I can never receive a message on the screen from
mythtvosd.  I type...

   mythtvosd mythtvosd --template=scroller --scroll_text=\"Boo!\"

...and then I get...

   Sent UDP/XML packet to IP and port: 6948

...but nothing shows up.  Is there something in the settings I need to
enable?  Is that IP OK (I assume that is a broadcast IP so would go to
all FE's on the network).

Any other advice?
