Hmm, this is not good. Can you try disconnecting the Video Source from
the firewire card in the Input Connections editor and then running that
same mythfilldatabase command? I'll try to debug this tonight or
tomorrow morning either way. 

I added a little reminder to myself to do this to the ticket at:
If you find a workaround before I get a chance to look at this
please post it there.
