Steps to allowing an additional MythTV frontend

First you need to set up the backend to allow it to communicate

You first need to stop the mythtv backend which is currently running, at the root prompt enter:

/etc/init.d/mythtv-backend stop

You can also stop the mysql server, enter:

/etc/init.d/mysql stop

You need to edit the my.cnf file and add a '#' symbol in front of the line 'bind address' to allow the front end to access the mysql database:

nano /etc/mysql/my.cnf
