Have you tried connecting to MySQL from the command line?

So it's all variables - Where the heck do I find where it's getting its

It pulls them out of $MYTHCONFDIR/config.xml, if MYTHCONFDIR is defined.
Otherwise, it uses $HOME/.mythtv/config.xml.
If that doesn't work, it tries to use UPnP.

It's not really bad code to read.
