I don't intentionally use it. I assume that's why if I run M$ Media
Player by accident I see the Myth server?
Unfortunately this MythTV wiki page on the subject doesn't seem to
tell me how to turn it off. I took a quick look using a frontend down
in the Setup / Utilities menu but I didn't see it. Do I need to use
mythtv-setup to adjust that?
