When I see the error below, what is the most likely cause?

[mythtv at recorder ~]$ ./Find_orphans.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./Find_orphans.py", line 224, in <module>
  File "./Find_orphans.py", line 161, in main
    recs, zerorecs, orphvids, orphimgs, dbbackup, unfiltered =
  File "./Find_orphans.py", line 84, in populate
    recs = list(DB.searchRecorded(**kwargs))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/MythTV/utility.py", line 139,
in __call__
    where,fields,joinbit = self.parseInp(kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/MythTV/utility.py", line 176,
in parseInp
    raise TypeError(errstr % (self.__name__, key))
TypeError: searchRecorded got an unexpected keyword argument 'livetv'

How can I help fix this?

Kind regards,
