I've been trying to get this to work since updating to Hardy.
I have a mythtv frontend+backend box that I want to connect to.
I can connect to that box with mythtv-frontend on my laptop (and also using MythTVPlayer on some Windows machines). However, I can't connect to it using the totem-plugin. I've put in the IP address of the mythtv box through gconf-editor and the same username and password from the mysql.txt file on the laptop, but when I click the "Refresh" button in Totem, no programs show up.
I'm a little confused as to what the totem plugin is trying to connect to. Is it trying to connect to the mysql database, or the mythtv backend? The reason for the confusion is that the information in gconf seems to be referring to the mysql database (wanting to know database name, username & password) but I thought that port 6543 was the port for the MythTV backend, not the MySQL DB.
