I seem to have an error when running mythrename.pl or ipodexport.pl. I have
no idea what the error really means and was hoping for some help. Here's the

DBI connect('database=mythconverg:host=localhost;port=3306','mythtv',...)
failed: Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES) at
/usr/share/perl5/MythTV.pm line 337
Cannot connect to database:

Here's the chunk of code around line 337 in MythTV.pm:

    # Connect to the database
        $self->{'dbh'} =
            or die "Cannot connect to database: $!\n\n";

So it's all variables - Where the heck do I find where it's getting its
settings? I'm running mythtv .21 on Mythbuntu 7.10. Thanks!
