Hi Bill!

Nope. It’s the third Backend since starting with MythTV. I’m just not

Figure out which Ethernet cable (well, at least some are identified! 
...Now this one is!)

myth-setup ==> database fails to start. Take out the .3, re-insert, 
save, exit.

mythfilldatabase – hmm: wonder why the complaints? (Ethernet still

Plug Ethernet back in. mythtv-setup – back to the 1.General screen. 
Exit; whatever it went in to automatically seeing the old 

Do pastebin stuff…. trying “mythtv-setup.real -v upnp” as I’m
