Connect to your mysql database from a terminal on your backend:
$ mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg
Check your settings, change HOSTNAME to the hostname of your laptop:
mysql> select * from settings where value = 'Theme' and hostname = 'HOSTNAME'
Change your theme to something more useable:
mysql> update settings set data = 'Blue' where value = 'Theme' and
hostname = 'HOSTNAME';
Exit the frontend, if it's open, and restart mythfrontend. It should
be using the default Blue theme now.
