Use the following to do the update in a single command:

$ mysql -u username -p mythconverg -e "UPDATE channel SET icon =
replace(icon, '/home/username/.mythtv/channels/',

- that statement is all on a single line, and you'll need to adjust
the mysql username and source/destination icon directories to match
your chosen 'universal' icon directory.
