This isn't the case. I can watch TV by firing up a frontend on the
backend system with out problems or the messages in the frontend error
log while run on the backend machine.
Also, I can watch a tv show with problems, and then play back the
recording mythtv has made without any problems at all.

I have an aerial in the loft and I am 8 miles away and have line of
sight to Emley Moor transmitter.
