I upgraded to:

But the error is the same:

Your IP Address settings are incorrect. Your backend on oscar-be is running as a slave backend (because its IP address doesn't match the specified master backend IP address), but is using an IP address of 127.0.0.1.

The best solution is likely to remove all references to localhost/127.0.0.1 and replace them with 192.168.91.10. Please ask for help on the mythtv-users list or #mythtv-users on IRC.

I am also getting similar error 2010-10-21 03:10:48.690 MythContext: Connecting to backend server: 192.168.1.33:6543 (try 1 of 1) 2010-10-21 03:10:55.693 MythSocket?(1ae96d0:44): readStringList: Error, timed out after 7000 ms. 2010-10-21 03:10:55.693 Protocol version check failure.

The response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION was empty. This happens when the backend is too busy to respond, or has deadlocked in due to bugs or hardware failure.

I have checked my IPs is correct. I can schedule a recording, view them but no live TV.
