[mythtv-users] No network: no frontend

MythTV Version : v0.25.2-19-gcf06841
MythTV Branch : fixes/0.25

Combined backend/frontend.

My understanding was that a MythTV box can (should?) be configured so 
that its network address is static, and that that IP address be told to 
the backend and to the frontend.

However, if the network for some reason can't connect (in my case, a 
wireless connection to the router), then the frontend won't start in the 
normal manner, and I'm presented with the language selection menu of the 
frontend. Attempting to cancel that just restarts the frontend and it 
returns to that menu.

Is there an easy way around that (assuming that for some reason the 
network connection can't be quickly re-established, eg., router 
failure)? Or have I got the configuration wrong? In other words, must 
MythTV have a working network connection for operation?
