Try running the frontend from the command line with -v audio, playback

I find the best way to do this is log in from my laptop over ssh and 
then run

export DISPLAY=:0
mythfrontend -v audio,playback

watch for errors on the laptop screen while you observe the mythtv box. 
You can save the output using shell redirection. for a list of other 
verbose logs you can see, try

mythfrontend -v help
