Carefully read the MySQL section in the MythTV docs -
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-6.html#ss6.2 - and ensure you have
given access to users wanting to access the mythconverg database.
What stage of the MythTV installation are you at? Why are you
connecting to the database as user mysql? Your mysql.txt file should
normally use user/pass of mythtv/mythtv.
