command is formed incorrectly.<br>&gt;The options should all precede the 
database name and you can't specify a<br>&gt;password using the -p option.  
Try:<br>&gt;<br>&gt;mysqldump -c -u mythtv --password=mythtv mythconverg 
&gt; mythtv_backup.sql<br>&gt;or<br>&gt;mysqldump -c -u mythtv -p 
mythconverg &gt; mythtv_backup.sql<br>&gt;<br>&gt;In the second case 
mysqldump will prompt you for the password (which is<br>&gt;also more secure 
since it doesn't show in a ps listing).<br>&gt;<br>&gt;--<br>&gt;A: Because 
it messes up the order in which people normally read text.<br>&gt;Q: Why is
