Hello all. Let me begin by saying I am new to XBMC and just downloaded it this morning with the intention of using it to stream live TV. I downloaded the video add-on Myth TV, but am having trouble synchronizing the two. After I installed MythTV, I opened it and was greeted with the message "Error: Connect to MySQL failed: 2003" Can anyone tell me why I am receiving this message, and what I need to do to get the add-on to work properly? Do I need additional hardware like a tuner or capture card, or is it just a formatting issue? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

My current PC's specs are as follows:
3ghz cord 2 quad
4gb Corsair 2000mhz
2 570gtx sli
EVGA 790i ftw
850W PS

I should also mention that I'm running XMBC 11.0 and Myth Box 1.1, not Myth TV. Thanks.

Are you running Myth 0.24 or 0.25? The plugin doesn't work with 0.25. The other thing to check is to make sure your mysql database is configured to allow remote connections. By default it doesn't.
