[mythtv-users] HVR-1600 on slave backend 'Unavailable'

Still having trouble here.  I don't see anything in the mythbackend log, or
in dmesg, or any other logfiles that mentions cx18 or ivtv.  As far as I can
tell, everything's working, except that it isn't..  mythbackend isn't
complaining about anything, but mythfrontend shows the input as unavailable.

If I run mythbackend as a service, it seems to write to its log file, and
from there it looks like it's trying to connect to mysql on localhost, even
though it's configured to connect on a remote IP address.  Any idea why that
is?  mysqld on localhost is stopped, so there's no reason it should be
trying to connect locally.

I'm losing a few marbles here.... anyone have any to spare?
