I have tried a handful of guides for installation, but I can't seem to get any of them to work. My ideal solution would be mythtv-backend running on Ubuntu Server connecting to the cmyth pvr plugin on XBMC.
I've started from scratch with fresh installs of Ubuntu several times, and I have never been able to get the front end to connect. I've changed the IP address setting in mythtv-setup and my.cnf. I have also run several different combinations of dpkg-reconfigure. I've been fighting with this so long, I feel like I'm missing something obvious.
One final question - any time I try to run mythtv-setup via ssh it prompts for a password. Anything I type is the wrong password - which is problematic - because I don't have X installed on this machine. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong, but I have no idea what.
How do I set up mythtv-backend on Ubuntu Server 12.10 for remote connections?
What's the secret to running mythtv-setup over ssh?
