Hello all,
I have looked around here as much as I could with the limited time I have left 
today and I really would appreciate if someone could point me to the answer 
to this error. Using debian etch, nvidia fx5200.

long pause here it means the Schema is already locked and is being upgraded 
by another Myth process.

already has 17 tables.
If you are sure this is a good mythtv database, verify
that the settings table has the DBSchemaVer variable.
