[mythtv-users] No database connection.

When I setup the new machine I put the hostname, mythtv user and
password in the mysql database.  This allows the backend machine to
connect to the mysql db and operate.

I then added the name of my laptop to the database along with the
mythtv user and password, when I try to connect it tells me that is not allowed to connect to the mysql database.  If I
change the name to an ip address then I can connect, I never had to
put in an ip number before, just the fqdn of my machine.

This is the error message:

Database error was:
Host '' is not allowed to connect to this MySQL server

What do I need to change to allow host name lookups rather than supply
an ip number?
