[I am about to boot over to Windows for my wife to watch TV as I've broken mythtv at a critical time).
I was getting on alright in 11.04, but wanted to update, so used the update manager to go to 11.10 and then 12.04. During the updates everything went well, the only notable feature being that I gave a new password for Mysql's mythtv user.
While going through some changes to do with the reasons for updating, my system clock got out of sync with the world. Mythtv recorded a couple of hours in the middle of the day as if it was tonights shows. I was not able to forget these recordings or override so as to force new ones.
I started Mythbuntu control centre hoping to use it a bit like dpkg - just to straighten things out.
After running it a couple of times I now have three unkillable Mythbackend processes. When I open Mythtv-setup, I get both "Mythbackend is still running" AND "Can't connect to Mythbackend, is it running?" messages, comically overlaid. The timestamps on the ps -e reports are usually very low e.g. 00:00:02, but I'm not sure if that just means that they started at startup or what?
Any help? I probably won't get back on for 24hrs (Windows, as I said). I assume this is just a noob mess for which I should raze everything to the foundations and start over, but if there's something smart to get me out of a jam I'd appreciate the help.
