Those aren't the mythtv instructions. What's the confusion here? It's not
_our_ fault if you don't know how to properly tell mysql to use a password if
you specifically went out of your way and set one. The docs even direct you
exactly where to go on mysql.com to find out about setting up a password, and
how to access the database once you've done that.
