In recent versions of 0.25 and 0.26 where MythTV listens to all link-local addresses by default, the backend may fail to bind to those addresses, and as a result refuse to run.

Me too:

Sep  2 20:16:07 myth mythbackend[2140]: E CoreContext serverpool.cpp:407 (listen
) Failed listening on TCP [fe80::fc54:ff:fe85:d589%vnet0]:6543 - Error 9: The ad
dress is not available

Workaround: disable IPV6

echo "net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1" > /etc/sysctl.d/disableipv6.conf
reboot # (or service procps restart and complicated killing of mythtv-backend)
