Mythtv frontends connect to the database, and from there get the IP
address for the master backend.  Your frontend diligently connected to
the DB you told it to, and pulled out the IP you configured on your
backend for the Myth backend server... which is currently set to

Go back into mythtv-setup on your backend and set the IP addresses to
something externally accessible (NOT HOSTNAMES, and not as
you currently configured) in step one.

So, not a bug.  A misconfiguration.
