After running updates today my mythbuntu machine started acting up. The frontend would complain it couldnt connect to the master backend although no addresses had been changed. When i opened the backend setup it would tell me that the backend was running so some changes might not work.
Then i decided to stop mythbacked with /etc/init.d/mythbackend stop
and ran it again from the terminal the output was about not being able to open the DVB devices.
I went into backend setup and removed the capture cards and sources and mythbackend started correctly and the frontends could connect.
Now when i try and add the capture cards i am stuck with a blank (themed) screen. If i ALT + TAB the output is roughly (couldn't figure out how to copy it)
can anyone offer any suggestions?
