Subject: [mythtv-users] mythbackend looking for wrong ip address

Hello, i have a strange issue. Mythbackend is not starting upon bootup, so
each time the machine boots, i have to run sudo mythbackend (ubuntu 7.10).
After that, it works great.
The ip of my myth backend is
I ran accross this on the ubuntu site:
        You can verify this to be the problem by attempting to restart the
                sudo /etc/init.d/mythtv-backend restart
        Then checking that the backend successfully started: 
                ps -p `cat /var/run/mythtv/mythbackend.pid`
That gave me this message (among a bunch of other stuff)...
            Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (113)
...my mysql.txt file is setup for where could this setting be stored? When i just run mythbackend as root, all
works great, when i run mythtv-backend start, it fails. why and how is this

Just after i sent this email off, i figured it out...there is a file at
/usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt with this setting. Anyone know why there are two
mysql.txt files? One here and one for each user...makes no sense to me at
this point.
