It is looking like your mythbackend is not responding to port 6544.
Try running this on your Buster server:
netstat -anp | grep 6544
This is what I get - it shows mythbackend listening on TCP port 6544
on all IP addresses on IPv4 and IPv6:
root at mypvr:~# netstat -anp | grep 6544
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:6544 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
tcp6 0 0 :::6544 :::* LISTEN
