I have a new HTPC system using Mythbuntu 8.10 64-bit. My system is a AMD X2 2.6 GHz with NVIDIA 8300 and HDHR connected directly to PC on wired ethernet port eth0. I have wireless connectivity to internet on ath0. My install was made with a single user "scott" who I have verified is a member of the mythtv group.

When I reboot the HTPC the "Watch TV" option does nothing. When I quite Mythfrontend and look at the Mythbackend log file it shows that it was unable to connect to the HDHR (Device not found). From my research it appears that this error is due to the HDHR not getting an address prior to the Mythbackend starting. I am still using NetworkManager.

My bigger issue is that when I try to manually start the Mythbackend using "sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend start" and I review the " /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log" it has the follwoing information with the error at the end. It connects to the HDHR but the "Watch TV" option does not work. I have tried to change the ownership of the recording directory to "scott" from "mythtv" to no avail (drwxrwsr-x 2 scott mythtv 4096 2009-01-24 10:45 /var/lib/mythtv/recordings/). Any suggestions?
