Restored old DB from previous setup. I have verified that cat /dev/video0 produces output. IP address is set to 127.0.0.1. Earlier I could get frontend to start without complaints, now both it says it can't connect to backend. setup pops up a window saying it can't connect to backend, but then asks if I want to stop backend before continuing setup :-/ ps -e says mythbackend is running.

Which means that your system is using defaults to connect to a
database--and, based on the missing/broken Video Source definition
mentioned later, I'm guessing that it's the wrong database (not the one
that was working on your system before you restored the old database).
Use mythfrontend -p to re-configure the config.xml stuff or just edit
config.xml. Also, if you /do/ have a mythconverg database on some other
host (versus the one that should have it), I /highly/ recommend dropping
that database--if you have only one mythconverg database schema on the
entire network, MythTV will never successfully connect to the
wrong/unconfigured/not usable one.
config.xml says the db is mythconverg. When I try to configure with mythfrontend -p it starts and exits, and in the terminal window there is:
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
