I'm assuming you mean you're logging mythfilldatabase output and didn't 
see anything in the log?

Note that if you run mfdb from the prompt, the next time it runs 
automatically through Myth, you're likely to get the "no new data"

expect to have), you should wait a couple of days to see if it just 
"goes away."
