 From the discussion on the Forum, this allowed DB access:

    mysql --user=mythtv --password --host=<your DB IP or hostname> mythconverg

Retry with: --host=localhost if the IP address was used please.

The above shows a broken link (~/.mythtv/config.xml is different from
~mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml.) localhost is the proper value for a backend
<Assuming> that the DB is on the same host. Won't fix this issue, but
prevents a future one.

Remove ~/.mythtv/config.xml and link it to the one in /etc:

   ln -s /etc/mythtv/config.xml ~/.mythtv/config.xml
