The Temp storage group is built-in and its location is calculated at
run time. [That's the 'Temp' between the // and @ above.]

It is in your <configuration directory>/tmp (perhaps $HOME/.mythtv/tmp.)
That can be changed if $MYTHCONFDIR is set.

See if that exists and can be read/written by anyone trying to access it.
