Start mythbackend and mythfrontend using the '--logfile filename'
option which will direct output to logfiles instead of the console.
The '--help' option will detail all runtime options for the programs.
Suitably verbose logs from the time of the crash will probably be
helpful diagnosing the problem. I would also go back into mythtv-setup
and remove unnecessary video sources to ensure you are starting with a
clean configuration.
