That is correct--there shouldn't be a hostname associated with 
MasterServerIP.  And this is why we don't recommend directly editing the 
database data, because if you change that, it will break all of MythTV.  :)

As I said--and as Geoff confirmed (and actually described how to fix) in 
the other half of this thread--first step is to fix the host name change.
