It's a known issue with (what has been described as an easy fix).  See 
http://mythtv.beirdo.ca/ircLog/channel/1/2009-07-07 starting with the 
first mention of "#3859" (no quotes) and pay particular attention to 
what kormoc says.

Basically, the problem is that no user has properly described their 
configuration (port proxying versus proxy server), so Rob was never able 
to figure out what bug they were talking about.  Finally, in IRC he got 
all the info he needed to describe the problem and the proper solution 
(meaning all the instructions are in that IRC log).

Please do up a (proper) patch and attach it to #6692 ( 
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/6692 ).
