Like all the MythTV programs, mythtv-setup.real accepts debug options
on its command line.  Run this from a command line to see the options:

mythtv-setup.real --help

When running it without --help, make sure to do it from the mythtv
user or a user in the mythtv group (such as the user that runs the GUI
and mythfrontend).  When run from the command line, the log output
will normally be back to that terminal, so you can see it and collect
it using a command line like this:

mythtv-setup.real --loglevel debug -v all 2&>1 | tee mythtv-setup.log
