[mythtv-users] Issue with back end host address

A few weeks ago I successfully migrated a MythTV 31 backend to a new PC. 
Recently I noticed the backend was set up to listen on all interfaces so 
I thought I'd reconfigure it to listen on just the PC's primary IP, It didn't go very well:

1. Stop mythbackend
2. Launch mythtv-setup
3. General.
4. Host Address Backend Setup
5. Uncheck Listen on All IP Addresses
6. Select Primary IP Address/DNS Name
7. The only IP listed was which was an old IP for the old 
PC. The old PC's IP was at the time I took the database 
backup which I imported into the new backend's database. None of the new 
PC's IPs-- or listed.
8. Select New Entry and enter
9. Exit Settings / Save and Exit
10. Redo steps 4 - 7. The Primary IP is still

I ended up going back to Listen on All IP Addresses. This lets me 
connect on OK. I'd just like to turn off listening on the 
other IPs.

Is this a bug or might I have migrated a stale database entry with the 
old IP? Any way to get this straightened out?
