Hi Michael...

Ok, I was always a little confused what "optimize_mythdb.pl" does for 
you so I read the mythtv wiki.

So, it really does what is says - it optimizes the data base - so things 
like running through the recording rules (for instance) does not take as 

But how should you run it?  I ran it as my self and it looked like it 
did something - but the first line said something about not able to 
access the data base.  So I ran it as root and it did the same thing but 
did not first print out the access problem.  So, I assume you need to 
run "optimize_mythdb.pl" with root privileges?
