I've had issues with the permissions on /dev/video not allowing "other"
I did put a sudo chmod 666 /dev/video* in my mythfrontend startup and
that seems to fix it. Probably a better solution, but this got it going.
The symptom was click on "watch tv", it would try and come right back
without doing anything.
