I carried on by myself and found the problem to be something to do with 
the mythtv MySQL tweaks.  I eventually went through all of the mysql 
config files and removed anything extra I could find and then everything 
worked fine.  I wish I found out what actually caused it though.

With that said, I still have a fairly major problem.  Ever since migrating 
to 0.28 I have been unable to edit out commercials cleanly.  I can still 
edit them fine for recordings made back on 0.27 in the 0.28 setup, but 
anything that was recorded by 0.28 is flakey.  What I mean by that is, 
I'll press E to go into edit mode and as I shift back and forth x number 
of seconds or minutes, the screen will start to show the correct frame and 
then snap back to a different frame.  It makes editing a nightmare.

Regarding upgrading, I don't know if my problems are a result of upgrading 
Mythtv or if it is a result of upgrading Mythbuntu.  I do wish now that I 
had not done anything.  I upgraded because I was tired of my Mac frontend 
always shifting up the screen as I switched inputs on my receiver.  I 
would constantly have to exit MythFrontend and restart it so I could see 
the whole screen.  The good part is the new frontend no longer does this, 
but I've missed a few recordings messing with this upgrade and I still 
have the editing problems.  I wish I never upgraded.
