It is a completely new server with no recordings. I'm free to do
anything. I'll be using my HD Homerun with this server and taking the
older PVR-150 server out of service as Comcast ramps down analog
I'm completely happy to remove every database and start over if it
makes a difference. That way at least there shouldn't be so many
questions about what's been done to the database.
What is the actual command I use in mysql to check this? I'd like
to check before I issue a new GRANT ALL. I think I'd learn something
I suspect that mythtv at macmini has not been accounted for.
