Is the backend server process running?

Try (as root) 'service mythbackend status'.

If not try 'service mythbackend start' or to see some log messages from 
another console window simply 'mythbackend' (assuming it's in your path).

Then run mythfrontend (or mythtv as you did above if you really just 
want the TV part)
