    You don't have priviledges to restart services. You need to use sudo.

    'sudo service mythtv-backend start'

    But there is virtually no information in this post. Did you install the Master Backend when you installed Mythbuntu? Did you run mythtv-setup? Did you tell mythtv-setup the correct IP address ( instead of Did you enable the mysql service (or is it the mythtv service?) in the Mythbuntu Control Centre? Does the Backend think it is currently running (sudo service mythtv-backend status)? Do the backend logs say anything special (/var/log/mythtv/mythtv-backend.log)?
