What did work is that I noticed that (I guess after the modem reset) the HDHR got assigned, whereas when I installed it in myth setup the address was  So I set up a static IP for the HDHR with that address, and voila!  It works with myth.  So somehow it myth was not detecting the new dynamic IP on reboot as I think it's supposed to do.  Maybe the tshark output I sent Stephen will offer some clues.  

Unless there is something I’ve not understood then myth will NOT auto-config the IP of the tuners.
DHCP is really useful but for myth you really want to have fixed IPs. The mess in the DB of a frontend that over years (for whatever reason) gets new IPs, each time you get a new IP you get an entry for that host, effectivly a new frontend, and loose any settings that you have configured for the ‘last frontend'
