Well, I didn't look into the code of Mythnetvison, so I don't know if
this is caused by Mythnetvision or other modules used by
Mythnetvision. I could just confirm that the Mythvideo scripts
returned a correct error message, telling me that I needed a MySQLdb
module, while the Mythnetvision scripts failed without a proper error

Do you know if the Python MySQLdb module is a requirement of the
Python bindings? If that is the case, I didn't fulfill the
Mythnetvision requirement "The Myth Python Bindings properly installed
and configured", which then essentially caused the issue. However, I
did search for information on setting up the Python Bindings, but I
was not able to find any info on requirements, except from partial
info on the mailinglist and the bugtracker (pointing me towards adding
--with-bindings=perl,python when compiling).

If the Python MySQLdb module is not a requirement of the Python
Bindings, I suppose that the Python MySQLdb module should be added as
a requirement of MythNetvision.
