To know how to troubleshoot this you need to understand your network a bit.

How is your backend connected to the HDHR?  Wi-Fi or wired?  What other
things are on the network?

What IP address do the HDHR and mythbackend have, and how are they
assigned?  They can be manually assigned or they can pick them up from a
device running DHCP (usually either a wifi access point or your ISP's
broadband modem/gateway).

Once you (and we) understand your network then the troubleshooting can

Good Luck
