You can try mysqlaccess mythtv to see what access mythtv has or 
 Log into mysql then use mysql; select * from user where User = 'mythtv';
This will show you where mythtv is allowed to connect from.

Subject: [mythtv-users] Frontends can't find database, can't connect

When I try to configure a remote frontend (I've tried another FC3 box, a Mac
OSX box.. haven't tried the Windows front end yet) it tells me that it can't
find the database. 

The messages that come up on screen say that the current user isn't allowed
to connect to the remote machine..

I'm not sure where to start looking for a solution to this.

Is there some portion of mysql that may not be running (i.e. the server?)
when mysqld is started?

Any ideas. 

Thanks Much.
