Start the Backend Server
When The database fill is complete, the backend will automatically restart. Check to be sure it is running and that it started correctly:
To check that the backend in now running:
$ ps -p `cat /var/run/mythtv/mythbackend.pid`
If you don't see output like:
PID TTY TIME CMD 30711 ? 00:00:00 mythbackend
then there was an error.
Next, check the backend log file for obvious errors:
$ more /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
