Replying to myself. To solve the issue of mythbackend not stopping
when told to by mythtv-setup (in ubuntu:)

In mythtv-setup, 1. General, 7th page, Backend Control, Backend stop
command, changed to sudo stop mythtv-backend.

Same page, Backend start command: sudo start mythtv-backend.

And did: sudo visudo -f /etc/sudoers.d/mythtv

User_Alias MYTHTV_USERS = bill, mythtv

Cmnd_Alias MYTHTV_COMMANDS =    \
    /sbin/stop mythtv-backend,  \
    /sbin/start mythtv-backend


(This isn't unique to the HVR-950Q.)
