My machine ( Standalone 0.18.1 on FC3 ) is set up to use nvram-wakeup and
mythfilldatabase via mythbackend (ie not cron ).

The machine only wakes up to record.  I think that MythBackend runs
Mythfilldatabase no more than once per day,  rather than at the same time
every day ( assuming the default config ).  If no program is scheduled at
the ideal time,  downloading occurs at the next start up.
