Are you using NetworkManager?  If so, the network interface likely
isn't coming up until you're logged into X, which is well after
mythbackend has already started.  If this is the problem, all you need
to do is get networking to start earlier.  Put an entry in
/etc/network/interfaces if you're using debian/ubuntu or
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts for fedora.
