mysql -h -u mythtv -p

Replace "" with the correct IP for your backend host, and  
"myth" with whatever username you're using for MythTV.  You'll be  
prompted for the password.

The machine you try this from will need the MySQL client installed.   
In most distributions this is in a package called "mysql-client" or  
something similar.
