Thanks Malcolm

It looks like I need to do a manual clean up and start again 

So essentially I need to 
-create the super user file with a text editor 
-place that file in access controls of the user that I am running under
-update the \etc\sysconfig\tvheadend accordingly
-rescan because the channels will be under whatever username I used last time

Best Regards

 This thread on the forum will probably help as well....
