Apparently it's been a while since I used mythtv (Been down for at least 3 days...)

Being just about exhausted, I thought I'd take an hour or two to catch up on the science fiction shows I watch (Doctor Who, StarGate Atlantis, Battlestar Gallactica, and movies that come along). However, nothing could connect to the back-end server. nmap shows the ports for myth just plain not open. The logs just say "starting up as master server" and then nothing at all.

I gather I must have broken it during the update I did on Thursday, probably another one of those annoying situations where some key detail is in the emerge messages but I didn't see them because I wasn't sitting at the keyboard.

    Might want to have a look at monit[1]. Simple system to make sure essential stuff is running.<br />

    Interestingly, it turned out that myth was running. The backend was running and recording, but it stopped listening on the ports for incoming connections. Couldn't kill the existing instance either. Eventually had to reboot the whole machine to get rid of that process. That done the clients were able to connect without problem.
