But, take a look at:


Especially these 3 lines:

     # Systemd sends stdout to syslog, and mythbackend has console logging enabled without --daemon.
     # Send stdout to /dev/null so console logging doesn't go to syslog

I'm a *buntu person, but it looks like what you're talking about. I suspect using --quiet
on the command line would also work. In other words, stop sending to stdio so redirection
to /dev/null isn't needed.
