Yes found the mysql.txt files. It looks OK on the frontend. On the backend I
have 2 files. one in .mythtv and one in /var/lib/mythtv. Looks like Iĉm
using the last one. The first one is probably from the "yum installation"
and the last from my compilation. On the backend DBHostName was "localhost".
I changed it to my backend IP address and verbose output on mythbackend
started using the IP address instead of localhost. Still the same problem.
What I also noticed in this file is that this lin:
is uncommented. Could that be a problem?

I uninstalled the MySQL server on the frontend.
