I checked this morning and only one copy is curtrently running.  Did a
reboot of the system, checked again, still one instance of mythbackend but
the updated log file had the same "duplicate" entries.

I only have one machine named "MythTV" but I have a rather complex routing
scheme setup where as 2 ips may resolve to that hostname depending on which
router they are attached to.  I'll have to double check network setup when I
get home.

I was connected to the mythweb interface from my laptop.

As my problem doesn't appear to be explicitly a hardware problem (I booted
into windows and verified that the HD-PVR could still record with and
without a power-cycle), and does not seem to be a software problem, it
sounds like it could be a configuration problem.  Would it make sense to
backup my current mythtv databse, blow it away and start from scratch?

As a side note, I also have a HVR-1800 hooked up which has had no problems
recording from my QAM connection.
