This was a real pain but I got it working. As we all know with mythtv 
there are 99 things that have to be perfect for it to work and I forgot 
an important one. On the backend the IP in General was still localhost.  
I changed that to it's real IP of and everything worked. I 
usually forget the Security PIN of 0000.

So we know it works on the RP3 using Mythtv-Light and adding the 
database. still need to get mythweb working. I must have missed a step
