[mythtv-users] LiveTV problems after 0.22 upgrade

Hi all

Just upgraded from 0.21 to 0.22 and ran in to some problems.

In short: I can record as usual and then watch recordings but I cannot
watch LiveTV. The error message is "Could not connect to master backend
-- is it running?"

The weird thing is that everything else seems to work just fine. I have
done some debugging and it looks like the ip address for the master
backend is suddenly changed from the correct value "" to
another value "lightening" when switching to live tv

Now, I have three computers that are involved

Backend / Frontend : "blue-monster/
Slave backend / Frontend : "lightening/"
Slave backend / Frontend : "angel/"

Once upon a time, year ago, the server was named "lightening".

Regardless of what frontend i start, they all try to connect to
lightening as master backend. Remember that this happened after
0.22-fixes upgrade from 0.21-fixes.

I have attached a log "mythfrontend -v all" from the frontend on

Interesting part is (First time lightening appears):

Any suggestions on what to try?
