OK, so i've set the password to be blank.

I can now login with mysql -u root or mysql -u root -p and just
pressing enter at the password prompt.

However, it still fails to install. Any ideas?

sudo dpkg-reconfigure --force mythtv-database
Failed to connect to database: Access denied for user
'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at -e line 5, <> line 1.
Failed to create database (incorrect admin username/password?)
If you supplied incorrect information, try:
dpkg-reconfigure --force mythtv-database
