I don't want to hijack this thread, but my question is closely related.
How do you stop livetv?
If I use ctrl F4, or ESC, it leaves either or both the frontend and backend running.
The video may stop but the sound continues and I can only stop the sound by rebooting.
This is the same on both of my myth boxes which are running Ubuntu 9.04.
Thanks for any help,
