[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase auto run - again sorry

I'm starting mythtv using:

service mythbackend start

in /etc/rc.local

Would that be why the environment variables aren't set? I didn't have it
running automatically on startup because I had to load a driver but I have
since found out how to modify the startup script for mythbacked to make it
work - just havn't bothered to change it...
