MythTV doesn't keep backups of settings. The best thing to do would be
to backup your database manually on a regular schedule to avoid the
situation you're in.

I'm not sure what you mean by "cleanup all settings". If you are just
getting started with MythTV you can certainly drop the database and
start fresh. To my knowledge there is no ability revert to default
settings for the backend.
