If you did the mysql < mc.sql part, it should have created its own user.
Are you running both mythtv and mysql on the same computer? Double-check /usr/local/share/mythtv/mysql.txt (or wherever you installed mythtv) that it has the correct informations.

Also try running: mysql -u mythtv -p
Entering the password: mythtv
If you can do: \u mythconverg  , there shouldn't be any errors
