Not sure what created these phantom directories in /home, but I can
tell you possibly why mythtvsetup is complaining about them

If you run ls -al on /home and see


Then you don't have permissions to see them 

You could run

# su -


chmod 744 /home/data and then /home/menutest
and chown mythtv:mythtv /home/data and then /home/menutest

Also what are your permissions on /var/lib/mythtv?

More details on what your distro / install source may help to shed light here?

Guys feel free to comment on what I listed here... 

Thanks Regg
