Thanks, I tried to view games as if to choose one to play (but like I said 
there is nothing in the list) and this is all I got fromthe console:

2007-03-22 19:29:27.616 XMLParse::LoadTheme 
using /usr/share/mythtv/themes/default/game-ui.xml

So then I went into setup to scan for games looks like they have been found:

Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Beavis and Butthead.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - California Games II.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Castlevania - Vampire's Kiss.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Der Langrisser.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Drift King - Shutokou Battle 2.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - ESPN Sunday Night NFL.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - F-1 Grand Prix Part III.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - F-Zero.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - GT Racing.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Jeopardy! Deluxe Edition.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - La Wares.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Lamborghini - American Challenge (E) [!].smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Madden NFL '98.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Mortal Kombat 3.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Super Metroid.smc
Found Rom : (Zsnes)  - Super Punch-Out!! (U).smc

I tried again to play a game and again got an empty list and the following 

2007-03-22 19:35:14.516 XMLParse::LoadTheme 
using /usr/share/mythtv/themes/default/game-ui.xml

OK, so I went back into settings and went to clear data and then re-imported.  
Here is what I got:

No romDB data read from database. Not imported?
2007-03-22 19:37:34.082 New DB connection, total: 3
2007-03-22 19:37:34.091 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host: localhost
Update gametype SNES

Any idea what is going on?
