Depends on how you're running mythfilldatabase. I think there's a way
of scheduling it from within MythTV in Utilities/Setup --> Setup -->
General (last screen).

However, in Australia we don't have Schedules Direct and we have
different programme guide grabbers. I run this as a daily cron job so
that I've always got 2 weeks of forward EPG data.
