Hi all,

I am having a problem with mythtv after upgrading to karmic and 0.22
and am trying to diagnose the issue.

Some time after startup, mythtv stops responding on port 6543

This is what I see running

phil     31842 31841  0 10:44 ?        00:00:00 /bin/sh -c nice
/usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --graboptions '--daily'
phil     31843 31842  0 10:44 ?        00:00:00
/usr/bin/mythfilldatabase --graboptions --daily
phil     31854 31843  0 10:44 ?        00:00:00 sh -c nice tv_grab_au
--config-file '/data/home/phil/.mythtv/FreeView.xmltv' --output
/tmp/mythgnoUuo --quiet --daily
phil     31855 31854  6 10:44 ?        00:00:18 /usr/bin/perl -w
/usr/bin/tv_grab_au --config-file
/data/home/phil/.mythtv/FreeView.xmltv --output /tmp/mythgnoUuo
--quiet --daily
mythtv   32352     1  0 10:48 ?        00:00:00 /bin/su -c
/usr/bin/mythbackend --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log mythtv
mythtv   32367 32352  0 10:48 ?        00:00:00 sh -c
/usr/bin/mythbackend --logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
mythtv   32368 32367 12 10:48 ?        00:00:01 /usr/bin/mythbackend
--logfile /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log

but port 6543 is not running

root at romeo:/etc/default# telnet localhost 6543
Trying 127.0.0.1...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

restarting myth does not resolve the issue. I had to reboot last time.
The logfile shows nothing out of the ordinary but I have default
logging at the moment.

Any suggestions as to where to start looking?

Phil
