Or do it in /etc/fstab like this:

//ash/shared    /mnt/ash   cifs
credentials=/home/mythtv/.smbpasswd,uid=mythtv,gid=mythtv 0 0

This way you don't have to have the password in fstab where it could
be seen. The .smbpasswd file would like this this and you should make
it readable only by mythtv:

# .passwd file - better than putting pwd in world readable fstab file.
username=yyyyyy
password=xxxxxx
