Does the hostname program give you "mythtv" or "mythtv.mythtv"? If the
latter, that's (at least part of) your problem--it's a different host name.

Also, FWIW, I recommend you never use 127.0.0.1 or localhost anywhere in
the MythTV configuration. If you use a real, routable IP address, it
makes expansion much easier as your system grows. Even on single-host
MythTV systems, it makes sense to use a real IP address.
