Severity: normal Keywords:


IN 12.04 MDs or third part MythTV frontends are not able to connect to MythTV Backend. Due to the below post in the forums, I changed the backend from to and was able to connect to the backend using an Android MythTV device where as before it would not work. I tried the MD MythTV with no luck, but it requires more testing. The sytem was set to dcerouter for backend MythTV. I changed it to with no change in results. MythTV frontend cannot connect to backend.

"I was having that issue also. I am not sure if it is related or not because I upgraded my install Myth to .27 and it may have reset some of the default settings that should be there normally. But in MythTV setup, in the general section. The backend IPv4 was set to the local loopback( I found somewhere on the internet that said that the backend only responds to requests on that ip address. So I changed the backend ip to the local LAN ip address(default: After that I was able to access it on my MD as well as my phone using mythtv frontend."
