As others have already said, MythTV is overkill for just watching TV,
The MythTV package needs to create a database called "mythconverg". In
order to do that, it needs to know the MySQL root password. It may be
blank by default. If you don't know the password, you can reset it if
you have system root privileges. You'll have to google for that,
because I don't remember how to do it...
