Just a guess on my part, but that looks like your Myth backend program
is unable to connect to the mysql database.

Does /etc/default/mythtv-backend contain sane values?
Does /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt contain sane values?
Does /etc/mysql/my.cnf contain a "bind-address" statement that matches
the "DBHostName" statement in /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt?
Can you connect to the "mythconverg" database in Mysql (as root)?
Have you looked at /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log to see what
mythbackend was trying to do at the time of the error?
