Hi (wave) I'm new to this list so if this has been discussed a million times 
don't flame me, flame google for not giving me the answer :-p

AFAIK mythfilldatabase does two tasks, grabbing scheduling data and database 

The first I don't use or need as the EIT data for the channels I watch is 
pretty good (apart from Dr Who being categorised as Show/GameShow). I 
currently have this disabled by using an empty write protected Foo.xmltv.

I'm pretty sure the maintenance needs to happen, as without it I thing the 
program table (amongst others) continues to grow.

Now whilst things appear to *work* mythfilldatabase reports failure and this 
shows up in the logs and in System Status. This irritates the hell out of me. 
Any suggestions?
