Howto to allow remote mythtv frontends connect to backend?

This is asked about gazillion times in the web… But very infrequent good answers/resolutions.. So here we go…

On the machine you’re running mysql (typically the same machine as your MythTV master backend server), you need to allow mysql connections from other hosts on your network.

$ mysql -u root -p mythconverg
mysql> grant all on mythconverg.* to mythtv@"192.168.2.%" identified by "mythtv";
mysql> flush privileges;
mysql> quit
