Try the following commands and see if you can log into the database.

Code: [Select]
$ cat /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt
$ mysql -umythtv -p(password from the above output) -h dcerouter mythconverg

This command worked perfectly, I was able to get into the database without a problem.  I still had the same issue connecting after verifying that the passwords were again, correct.

If you are still denied access then you may need to allow additional access.  THis is from the mythtv documentation.
Code: [Select]
$ mysql -u root mythconverg
$ mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"192.168.80.%" identified by "mythtv";
$ mysql> flush privileges;

I gave this a shot as well, to no avail.  I'll play around with the permissions a bit.

I did, however, get a small change when I set the hostname to dcerouter rather than localhost.  If the hostname is anything other than dcerouter, then the MythTV "skin" or "theme", whatever they choose to call it, is sort of brown in color.  It's a real earthy look at any rate.  When I use dcerouter as the hostname, Myth immediately jumps into a setup mode where it states that it cannot connect to the database.  The theme of this setup utility is a vibrant blue color, much different than that of what I'm used to seeing so far with LMCE and MythTV.

I have also verified that the backend is indeed running.  I've tried every combination of hostname/ip I can think of as well.

I'll play with the database permissions and see what I can come up with.   I really would like LMCE to work, but I think my hair is turning grey over this.

I really appreciate the responses that all of you have given.

The password in /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt looks to be the same as the password in the Myth setup.

I just set both of them to 'localhost'.  I don't get the first error message any longer, but I still get the second one.

This is a box-stock install, if that helps.  Perhaps I missed a setting somewhere?

Greetings!  This is my first post, but I've done some extensive searching and have come up empty handed.

I've got a Beta 2 setup running and when I click on "TV", I get the following message:

MythTV seems to have died.  I'm trying to reset it now.  If you do not see tv, try stopping the tv and restarting it.  If you still have problems, you may need to reboot."

MythTV then immediately reports the following:

Could not connect to the master backend server -- is it running?  Is the IP address set for it in the setup program correct?

I've changed the Myth setup to point to an IP address, rather than simply "localhost" as per some information I've found through searching.  I've tried both the external and internal IP addresses.

I also read that I might need to check that the backend is actually running and that I may need to manually start it.  I'm completely fine with that, but I don't have any idea how to perform said actions.

Could someone tell me how to check if it's running and/or how to start it?  Is there existing documentation on this that I've missed?

Thank you for your time!
