More likely an access issue with your MySQL installation, which is
denying access to remote hosts. Check your /etc/my.cnf on the DB host
in case it is binding to localhost, and if that is not the case, you
may have to grant access for your remote machines to the MythTV
database directly - instructions can be found in the MythTV docs and
on the wiki.
