Depends which version you're running, but on 10.04 you have to edit
/etc/init/mythtv-backend.conf, and append the option to the end of the
command in the script block (line 23 on my machine). The line should
end up something like this:
LANG=$LANG /usr/bin/mythbackend --logfile
/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log --user mythtv -v "record,file,extra"
I'm running the autobuilds packages for 0.24 fixes as opposed to the
stock mythbuntu packages, so things might not 100% match this. Should
be pretty similar though.
