This *proves* mysqld is not running

/etc/init.d/mysql start

Then you should get an output from netstat -an | grep 3306 and ps auxww 
| grep mysqld | grep -v grep

Then try

mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg

and using either mythtv or the output of

sudo grep DBPassword /usr/share/mythtv/mysql.txt | cut -d = -f 2

as the password
