I thought about network issues (including DNS). I am planning on moving my
3 HDHRs to their own network and have ordered another NIC for my backend to
facilitate this. The NIC isn't in yet, but this morning I moved all the
HDHRs to a separate, unmanaged switch and for now, simply patched it to the
main switch on my network as well as moving a couple other patch cables
around. I though perhaps it was bad ARP tables in the switches from all the
moving of stuff around. I power cycled everything (both switches and router
with dd-wrt which handles DNS for my network), hoping it would clear the ARP
tables, but nothing changed.
About 10 minutes after I power cycled all my network gear, I was trying to
dig through logs to get a sample for this thread, it just started working
properly again out of the blue. Perhaps it was ARP issues and power cycling
didn't clear the tables and it took a while for the switches to work it out?
Now, however the frontend I was playing with to get a log file sample of the
frontend starting isn't logging to /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log (though
it is to the db). I had removed mythfrontend.log and run "sudo
install -m0644 -o syslog -g adm /dev/null /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log"
to try and get a fresh log file with a fresh startup but nothing is logging
to it. htop shows the frontend process as running
"mythfrontend.real --syslog local7" which should cause logging to the log
file, shouldn't it?
