You have a permissions problem.  Make sure that both the user who runs 
the frontend and the user who runs the backend have access to the files 
and directories in which the channel icons are stored.  Note that 
usually the icons are placed in the $HOME/.mythtv/channels directory of 
the user who ran mythtv-setup to populate the icons, so if you run the 
backend and frontend as different users--especially if one of them is 
root--you likely will be making the channel icons not available to the 
other user.
