My guess is that your backend is being started by init scripts.  It may be
that the init scripts are setting up your environment differently than you
would expect, and not loading the same environmental variables as the login
shell.  In any case, running servers as root is considered by most to be a
"bad thing", and you should looking into reworking the init script to run
as user 'mythtv' as well.
