[mythtv-users] frontend cannot see recordings after upgrade to 0.29

Hi,
I have been running Mythtv for 13 years...  Switched to Ubuntu at some
point a long the way.  I recently updated from 0.28 to 0.29 and now the
frontend of my combined frontend backend  cannot see any recordings.  The
recordings listed in the frontend are grey with and "x" by them showing
they are missing.  But those aren't all the recordings on the backend.
Mythfrontend starts and Watch Live TV works just fine.

Since the upgrade from 0.28 to 0.29, I did not change any settings.  On the
frontend, the hostname is set to ip address 192.168.2.253.  I do have "use
custom identifier for frontend preferences" = Yes.  I don't remember why I
set that.

The backend is recording shows just fine and I recently installed
Mythfrontend on a new laptop and that can playback recordings without any
issue.

Thanks for the help.

The frontend that doesn't work is running , fixes/29 [v29.0-48-gcf364af]
and shows theses messages,
