motherboard/nic change - now license invalid

I replaced my motherboard and with that came a new built-in nic. After reading here that the license is tied to the mac addr I ran, as root, and it indicated success. However, when I start sagetv I get the following in sagetv_0.txt:

INFO - Checking license...
INFO - License file is invalid or not found; some features of this software have been disabled:
SMTP server support disabled.
Process executor server support disabled.
Only one notification sent per event.

And neither of my two extenders will connect to the server, so I am dead in the water here, no TV and an angry family.

Anyone have ideas on what to check/do next?

Don't you just love how solutions seem to come more easily once you admit failure in public :-)

Turns out the new nic caused an eth1 device to be created in addition to the original eth0. I edited /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, deleting the original eht0 definition (the one with the old mac addr) and changing the new eth1 definition to be eth0. After that and a reboot for good measure all seems to be well.

Not exactly sure why but guessing that the sage key processing somewhere assumes eth0 and that was causing my error. I did _not_ have to regen the key again after making the change described above.
