In MythTV, all settings are stored in the database, and your system's 
hostname is used as a profile name for any non-global settings and 
options.  The "LocalHostName" value exists only in the text files that 
specify your database credentials, and allow you to select an alternate 
profile name to use for those options.  The only reason it should be 
used is if you want to run multiple different configurations on a single 
machine, such as one for your desktop monitor, and another for a 
projector connected to the same system.
