Just in case, "my username" sounds like it could be "harry", 
you must test using "mythtv". But I suspect you know that. 

And, like Nick suggested, that mythtv its password exists in ALL 
copies of config.xml and mysql.txt. locate -b '\mysql.txt' '\config.xml' 

Next step: mythtv-setup --logpath /tmp and exit. 

Then pastebinit /tmp/mythtv-setup.20121119231914.6749.log (or whatever 
file was created. Post the link returned by pastebinit here. If you 
don't have it, sudo apt-get install pastebinit (I've become a bit fan 
of it.) 


Yeah, my username was not mythtv. So I cleared out all of the mysql.txt and config.xml files (I think all of them), ran "sudo dpkg-reconfigure mythtv-common" as Nick suggested, let the mythtv user get a new password generated, and ran mythtv-setup again. Same result. When I try to log in using "mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg", I get "ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES) ". 

BTW, here's the pastebinit URL that you requested: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1371704
