How does one shutdown the pre-built mythbackend?

Seems silly, but, I don't see a way to do it except for:

1. Force quit from the dock or
2. Use a launchctl script instead

Applications > MacPorts > MythTV and use Myth Stop Start ?

Pre built. Not MacPorts!

I thought you were referring to the all-in-one installer. I call the version produced from the osx-packager scripts "bundled" apps.

Using launchctl is the proper way to start and stop the backend. Even if you force quit the mythbackend process, launchd should notice and restart it within a couple of minutes. The Myth Stop Stop "app" is really just a simple Applescript helper that issues the appropriate launchctl commands.
