Are you using Banana Pi or Raspberry Pi? I think bananian only runs on
banana pi?

When you say the host name, I assume you are referring to the
.mythtv/config.xml file.

It sounds like your Raspberry Pi is unable to contact the database. Make
sure the database is set up to allow remote logins. If this is not the
problem check your connectivity and try logging on to the database using
mysql from the raspberry pi.
