Myth box then you are having the same problem I had. You should try the fix
I posted, properly edited of course. Note that once you reboot the Myth box
it is too late to do the test with the Pi. What you want to know is if the
HDHRs are online but the Myth box cannot see them at the same time that the
Pi can.
