Access denied for mythtv on 10.04
« on: November 18, 2011, 11:42:41 am »
I get this error when running the MythTV Backend Setup : Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Running the solution suggested at http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,4158.0.html doesn't do the trick.
Did anybody else see this? Or is it time for a trac ticket?

OK, here's my solution to my problem:

apt-get remove for all mthtv related packages
reboot
apt-get install  for all mthtv related packages

Change password in  /home/xxx/.mythtv/mysql.txt    xxx=my user

edit /etc/group
add root,xxx to video group

Now I don't get any errors and are scanning for channels.

You should _NEVER_ have had to do that. The MythTV Plugin and MythTV Player postinst scripts for each package have the requisite code to configure MythTV for first time use appropriately.
