It looks as if your replies have been off-list.  That's not a good idea 
because I don't use mythweb or networked tuners.  But the list regularly 
has posts with network tuner problems caused, IIUC, by the backend being 
started when the first device comes online instead of waiting until all 
devices are available.  I start the backend and frontend manually - 
which works for me;  others may be able to improve on my guesses.
