If this is the mysql 5.x problem with idle connections timing out and
mythtv not reconnecting then try putting:

connect_timeout         = 2592000
wait_timeout            = 2592000

in your /etc/mysql/my.cnf Then restart mysql and your mythtv backend.

I'm pretty sure it's just the wait_timeout one you need, but I stuck
both in and it fixed the problem, so I didn't bother to narrow it down

This'll stop your mysql connections timing out due to idleness for up to
30 days.
