In my home directory (as well as ~mythtv) I see this file 
.mythtv/OTA-xxxx.xmltv. This file contains my schedulesdirect username 
and password in plain English.  Hope you have something similar and easy 
to change the password.

You need it in both places if you want to run mythfilldatabase from both 
accounts. Otherwise you just need it in the relevant place.

Regards
Ramesh
