Hello again, I solve the "Error: MythTV is using all inputs, but there
are no active recordings?". It was because I have the SASC-NG plugin,
I dissable and now there is error message, but when I try to watch
LiveTV there is a blanck screen and return to the menu. This is the
fronted shell output:

This happen when the backend is running with "mythtv" user, if I start
the backend as normal user I can watch LiveTV.
Is preferable to change the backend user or the fronted user?
Thanks and regards.
