This was recently covered in the list but with the recent volume of 
messages its not hard to miss. You will need to run mythtv-setup and 
create a pin number for your system. I think its right on the first 
page. Then after restarting the backend use the same pin number to 
connect the frontend. Once set you will not need to enter it again. 
Also, a setting of 0000 (all zeros) on backend will disable the feature.
