Thanks for the tip. The output seems normal. When I run sudo
/etc/init.d/mythtv-status reload, then /etc/motd is updated properly.
But when I log in the motd day is reset and it doesn't show up. I even
tried doing the reload and then logging in with a second ssh window.
The act of logging in seems to reset the motd somehow. I don't know
enough about the login process to know where to look to find out how
this could be happening.
