Couple of things:

- make sure you do this on your master backend (i.e. on the machine that 
the database resides on)

- have a look at what /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt says. This file contains 
your database location and credentials.

The following extracts the required info from that file and then takes 
you into mysql:

. /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt
mysql -h $DBHostName -u $DBUserName --password=$DBPassword $DBName

Note that the second method, which explicitly addresses your database 
server, will work from any machine that mythtv has been successfully set 
up on: I just tried the above from my frontend.

Note to others: this may be Ubuntu-specific; I don't know.

HTH, Jan
