[mythtv-users] Can't send mythfilldatabase output to /dev/null

When I run this command, all the output should go to /dev/null, I believe:

$ mythfilldatabase --file 1 7 /home/mythtv/.xmltv/tvlistings.xml 2>&1
> /dev/null

However, the output goes to screen, or to mail when I run it from
cron, and that is a problem for me - I don't want mails building up.
Does anyone know why this is outputting anything when AFAIK it should
all be discarded to /dev/null?
