> I don't know if this normal, but mythfilldatabase on my system (1.8GHz Athlon) using tv_grab_uk_rt set to use 43 channels takes literally hours to run. Running 'top' during this process shows tv_grab_uk_rt and mysqld both using about 50% of the CPU. Is this normal?
No it is not normal. It should only take a few minutes even on a
1.8GHz athlon. Do you have thousands of recorded shows in your
database? Or perhaps there is corruption in your database that is
being fixed.
