You didn't ask that question. And, sorry, no, I can't.
My system doesn't have `addusr`, only `adduser`, which is a symlink
to `useradd`. Were one invoking this one would need to ensure that
the "-m" or "--create-home" parameter was set, in order to ensure a
home directory was made. I would expect permissions to be set
correctly, as long as the default ~mythtv did not already exist.
But since you already have a /home/mythtv, why don't you simply
`chown -R mythtv.mythtv /home/mythtv`?
