Hi Ian and evebody.
I use mythtv on 2 computers, but I have only 1 tuner pn usbstick.

Sometimes when booting a computer I forget to put the usbstick on the 
right machine and then after starting the computer, frontend tells me 
that there is a problem with backend. Backend has not been started 
automatically because it could not find the tuner.

In this case, after connecting the tuner, I do:

# systemctl stop mythtv-backend
# systemctl start mythtv-backend
# systemctl status mythtv-backend

Normally the backend is active now. So I return to see what the frontend 
says. Sometimes the error message has disappeared, but not always.

If there is still the error message, I reboot my machine and then the 
backend starts automatically and frontend no more complains.

In the moment I have:

$ ps ax | grep -i myth*
  4747 pts/3    S+     0:00 grep -i myth*
  7957 ?        Ssl   15:32 /usr/bin/mythbackend --daemon --pidfile 

Seems correct.

For the moment, my computer runs day and night and there should be no 
problem. Next time I reboot it, I shall first regard if tere is more 
than 1 mythtv process running and in this case, I know what to do now.

If my problem persists, I shall tell you.

thanks very much for help
