modify backend settings on a running system

Once you have your system up and running, there comes a time that you want to change some mythbackend setting.

We've done a lot of work to keep the system up and running so for example if you stop mythbackend, the cron job starts it up. Or, if you shutdown mythbackend to change the settings, the tuners get switched off and there are no video devices (/dev/video..) to configure.

So we have to take a few steps before changing backend settings:
stop cron  deamon: service cron stop
prevent silvershield from shutting off tuners: chmod 000 /usr/local/bin/silvershield.sh

showdown mythwelcome
from the menu start mythtv control center
edit settings

chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/silvershield.sh
service cron start
