But, _please_ don't use these unless you have to (i.e. you downloaded 
data when your timezone was set incorrectly and have since fixed your 
timezone) as they put an unnecessary strain on the DataDirect servers.  
Instead, let Myth do it's job (and trust that it will).  See 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/226716#226716 and 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/226717#226717 .

If anyone puts these options in their mythfilldatabase args or in the 
cron job they're using to run mythfilldatabase, they should have their 
MythTV (or at least their DataDirect/other grabber) privileges 
revoked...  :)
