	Most likely the HDHR has not completed its DHCP negotiation when Mythbackend 
tries to find it. Hence the "Network is unreachable" errors.

	You will have to find what is starting Mythbackend and add a delay to allow 
sufficient time for the HDHR to receive its DHCP info and come on line. This 
will be distribution specific.
