But the errors are important...

Basically, because mfdb detected errors during the download of the data, 
it aborted the post-download processing (which includes re-running the 
scheduler).  As a crude hack of a workaround, you could force a run of 
"mythbackend --resched" after running mfdb.

The right fix is to fix your XMLTV grabber script (or find someone else 
who has done so).  However, another "workaround" is to upgrade to SVN 
head post r9295 ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/commits/188595#188595 ) or 
0.19-fixes post r9665 ( 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/commits/196461#196461 ).  
Those revs contain a patch that allows mfdb to do the post-download 
processing even though the errors occurred.
