[mythtv-users] Master/slave backend problems

OK, I am probably missing something really fundamental here, but it is
driving me crazy as I cannot even get past the setup of a mbe and sbe.
Using VMware Server I setup to virtual machines running CentOS 5.3.
Following the howto's in the wiki, I have setup one of the vm's with
mythtv from atrpms as the mbe. This all went well and I was able to add
one of the inputs of my HD Homerun as an input device and it works OK.
On the second vm, I setup MythTV from atrpms and followed the
documentation (chapter 9.3 I believe). I made sure MySQL is not running
on the sbe and ran mythtv-setup. The first screen I recall asked for a
Language and then the next screen showed the UPnP mbe and I chose manual
config and entered the ip address of the mbe. Then I went through option
1 General and specified the IP address of the mbe in both ip address
locations on the sbe. Then I used option 2 to setup the second input
from the HD Homerun, skipped option 3, used option 4 to connect HD
Homerun to the video source. I then started/restarte mythbackend on both
the mbe and the sbe.
When I start the frontend on the mbe, under machine status, the first
tuner (port 0 on the mbe) is available but not recording. The second
tuner (port 1 on the sbe) is listed as unavailable.
In the mbe log here is the only lines that I can see might be pertinent:

I am really stumped and have googled and search gossamer-threads to try
and find an answer or at least something to look for. If you have any
ideas I would appreciate your help.
