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 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.
