Yeah, I'm stupid, should have done that, but cleared all the listings 
before I thought of it or got your email that mentioned that option.  
Anyway your solution seemed to have worked, if its all working again 
tomorrow I'll know for sure.  Thanks again for the patch.

I use:
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:mythtv at cvs.mythtv.org:/var/lib/mythcvs update -d -PA 

Can I be confident that any additional changes made to filldata.cpp will 
be added without removing my changes?
