I have a VM with a different IP address which I've installed mysql-client
on just now. That connected immediately to the mythconverg database - even
though I didn't set up a specific user for its IP address.

So it looks like the backend can accept remote database connections. It
just doesn't want to accept one from my Chromecast with Google TV device.
