Are you sure you have the IP addresses/hostnames properly configured 
everywhere?  IIRC, this often happens because the backend doesn't know 
it's supposed to be the master backend (i.e. because you used a somewhere in the configuration*** or something).


***You can /only/ use in the configuration when you have only 
a single MythTV system that serves as the frontend and backend (i.e. a 
single combined frontend/backend system).  Even then, though, you 
/should/ use real IP addresses.
