I get a similar problem, the problem for me is that as mythbackend is
running as root, it doesn't locate the configure files.
In /var/log/mythtv/mythfilldatabase I get the error message
config file //.mythtv/Satellite.xmltv does not exist, run me with --configure
I haven't yet found a solution, short of running is manually. I tried
running mythbackend as mythtv user but on FC3 that seems to cause
other problems. I also tried to pass the file in the arguments using
--graboptions "--configure /home/mythtv/.mythtv/Satellite.xmltv" but
this doesn't seem to work either.
At this rate I might have to go back to running a cron job as I did with 0.16
