Also, if you want to add additional parameters for things like logging, you
should let us know what distribution and package you're using so you can be
advised on where to specify the arguments to mythbackend on starting.  The
correct place, for example, for the Debian package I'm using is to edit and
uncomment either ARGS="" or EXTRA_ARGS="" in the
/etc/default/mythtv-backend file.
