Bill thanks

[sandypit] /home/jam [1008]% mythbackend --version
Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
MythTV Version : v31.0-85-gd3088629de
MythTV Branch : fixes/31
Network Protocol : 91
Library API : 31.20200101-1
QT Version : 5.12.7

Since I cannot imagine how the frontend/mythtv-setup were not the same as :6544 icons I must assume I screwedup and did not clear the browser cache.
Any way with a bit of understanding and a bit of logic I'm out of the swamp :-) - thanks
