Pretty short BE log. pastebin requires no setup, just go to pastebin.com
There are usually more lines that say what the BE is listening on. I can't
recall if 0.27 has the log message, but a '... connected to the DB ... is
expected currently. Need to know that to be sure that the BE isn't reverting
to some fail-safe values, e.g.

If mythtv-setup isn't working, and you're comfortable with SQL, I'd do

     SELECT * FROM settings WHERE value IN ('AllowLinkLocal', 'BackendServerIP', 'MasterServerIP');

The log say the BE is running as master, so the ServerIPs should be OK.

If AllowLinkLocal isn't = 1, then the BE won't be listening on
