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 192.168.0.30 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
