OK, I got it working, but I'm not sure how or why it got broken. I
noticed that the /etc/network/interfaces file contained the following:
iface lo inet loopback
Nothing concerning my eth0 interface, so I added the following,
restarted the network, and all is well:
iface eth0 inet static
Oddly enough, since I've done this, I've noticed that menu response and
Mythweb response is MUCH improved. Before this, moving from 1 screen to
another in the frontend would take 15-20 seconds, and in Mythweb, moving
from 1 page to another would be 10-15 seconds. Even hovering over a
show title to get the description would take 15 seconds or so.
I'll keep an eye on it, but I thought this info might prove helpful for
