warpme, as Raymond alluded to, your DESC jobqueue; confirms that your
jobqueue table definition is wrong.
You can fix it by executing:
ALTER TABLE jobqueue MODIFY hostname varchar(64) NOT NULL default '';
in a mysql client.
However, if that table is improperly defined--and you can't say for sure
how it got that way--there's a good chance other parts of your schema
are also broken/corrupted by whatever broke this. If that's the case,
you may want to consider doing a partial restore--i.e. allow MythTV to
create a brand-new, empty schema, then restore only the
critical/not-recreatable data, then reconfigure everything (on all
hosts). It's a lot of work, but it will ensure your schema is correct.
where your database falls under the "primarily useful as a last-resort
when ... the database schema itself is corrupt" category.
