    [SOLVED] Live frontend can't connect to the master backend

    I am trying Mythbuntu Live CD frontend on a different machine. The test was sucessful connecting to MySQL in the setup program. But when I click Watch TV, I got,

    "Could not connect to the master backend server -- is it running? Is the IP address set for it in the setup program correct?"

    Your backend is not configured for remote access properly,. Go into mythtv-setup on that backend and be sure to put in an IP address in both boxes of general that is not a loopback address.
