There is a new feature in v29 that blocks access from outside of your 
local network, as a security measure. You can override that by going to 
mythtv-setup, general, host address backend settings, and selecting 
"allow connections from all subnets". It is not recommended because then 
the whole world can connect to your mythtv system.
