From the comments in my mysql config file, using localhost will default
to using sockets rather than networking, so I suspect your mysql server
isn't listening on the network at all. Try adding the following lines
to your my.cnf file, and check the mysql init.d file to see whether
that's adding any command line options which may disable networking.
port = 3306
bind-address = 127.0.0.1 mythtv
(you may need to use the IP address instead of mythtv there).
