FYI, today I added my Mac mini (running OSX) as a frontend to my MythTV
At first it didn't work, and I couldn't understand why, until i tried
running it from Terminal under OSX. Then I saw the error messages.
The default setup for the mythtv port only adds a local mythtv user (ie.
access from localhost) in MySQL.
I fixed it with:
mysql -u root -p mysql
mysql> grant all on mythtconverg.* to 'mythtv'@'%' identified by
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> exit;

PS. don't forget to secure your mysql initial accounts:
Torfinn Ingolfsen,
