No, hardware wouldn't be my first guess, but, I've seen lots of posts
about early WD drive failures, so, maybe it is.  Here's some info:

1. Look for mythpostohfkoL on your machine
#locate mythpostohfkoL

- This file does not exist on my machine, but, I'm in the US.  Does that
make a difference?
- xtvdService is also not on my machine.

2. On the 401 Unauthorized error

Yes, I've seen the 401 Unauthorized error before.  It usually moves on
to the next url and is successful.

3. This error:

>Driver error was [2/2013]:

, is probably related to the mythpostohfkoL issue

4. Here's some instuctions to some basic mysql tips:

- To enter into the linux mysql client
#mysql -uroot -pyourpassword

or, using the mythtv user and password,

#mysql -umythtv -pmythtv

Once into the client:

- to display databases:
mysql>show databases:

- to switch to a particular database (in this case 'mythconverg'):
mysql>use mythconverg;

- to display all tables in a database:
mysql>show tables;

- to display all contents of all rows of a table (in this case, the
channel table):
mysql>select * from channel;

- to display only selected columns of a table (in this case chanid,
channum, and freqid from the channel table):
mysql>select chanid, channum, freqid from channel;

Hope this helps, good luck,
