[mythtv-users] Master Backend video cards show not connected

I just added a PVR-500 to my slave back end yesterday. Since then the 
master backend is showing the two PVR-150's that I have in it as remote 
and not connected.  The PVR-150's worked well until the PVR-500's were 
put in.  One other thing I noticed is that the PVR-150's have taken on 
the name (Master) instead of the host name of the server.  Master is the 
special name I gave my front end that is on the master back end.  I have 
had the name of master for my front end on the master back end for a few 
months already without any issue.

ivtv0: Initialized Hauppauge WinTV PVR-150, card #0
ivtv1: Initialized Hauppauge WinTV PVR-150, card #1
[root at mythtv ~]#

As you can see the cards do show up just fine in the config.

I also checked my messages log file upon reboot of the master server and 
the PVR-150 cards load fine without any errors.  It just appears that 
the master backend does not know they exist because it thinks they are 
on a remote backend for some reason.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
