No, that's not true. He said his connection to the DB was fine, so
presumably he's already set up mysql.txt correctly. Once a connection
to the DB is made, it retrieves the master backend IP from the
Ed, if you can't find the setup program on your backend (if you
installed from packages it might be called 'mythtvsetup'), you can edit
the database directly. If you're comfortable with MySQL, you can try
the following query in the 'mythconverg' database:
UPDATE settings SET data='<your real master backend IP address>' where
value = 'MasterServerIP';
