MythTV cannot connect to backend

Postby mark_anderson_us on Sat Jan 19, 2013 6:32 pm

Hi All

Installed fresh LinuxMint14 the other day on VMWare (just testing). Got MythTV working a bit last night (using HDHomeRun). Installed XBMC this morning and now I can't connect keep getting:

frontend could not connect to backend

I'm using a DHCP reservatio so will always get same address. Syste, may have been on other net when I installed though

This is my log file (i'm using full IP addresses not 127... as I'll be using other front-ends). I can connect to mysql OK from terminal. Nothing is running on port 6543

Not sure why it say listening "(listen) Listening on TCP 127.0.0.1:6543"

Anyone got any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Need a little more info. Do you already have another backend and you are just wanting to run the frontend in your VM? Or are you wanting both backend/frontend running in the VM?
The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)
