For mythfrontend most settings are stored in the backend database. If it 
is a new database they will be lost. Also for mythfrontend on android 
the frontend name defaults to android-xxxxxxxx where xxxxxx is some 
random number. If you reinstall on android, that number may change. 
Settings are stored based on frontend name. It is best to go into 
frontend setup and enter a frontend name that you choose, so that it 
finds the same settings as before.
