[mythtv-users] Cannot watch LiveTV

I have determined that the driver for the USB TV card is not reliable
enough for my taste (dmesg keeps saying that it's locking up.)  so I'm
putting this work project on hold for now until such a time as I can get
a PVR-250 installed in carter, which I am more comfortable with, as I
have been using one without (much) difficulty since 2006.  In the
meantime, I need to know how to connect my mythfrontend on carter to
camille (the existing working myth server).  I have changed the master
backend IP address in carter's mythtv-setup to camille's LAN address and
the local backend IP address to 127.0.0.1.  When I try to view a
recording on carter either from camille via ssh or from carter, I can't.
 Here's the output of the mythfrontend attempt on camille:
