I got it working now, but I'm not 100% sure what I did. For some reason
my system kept going back to DHCP even when I told it to go static. I
think that somehow mysql was setup using the DHCP address instead of my
static address. I fixed that up, then did the following from with mysql:
mysql -u root -p (enter root's password)
grant all privileges on mythconverg.* to mythtv@'%' identified
by 'mythtv' with grant option;
After that I was able to login to mysql as both root and mythtv, then
when I rebooted, it came up normally. Very odd, but I'm back.
Thanks for the help!
