[mythtv-users] Mythfilldatabase is REALLY slow.

By and large, MythTV logs only exist to figure out what happened after 
the fact.  If you're getting guide data, there is no real reason to go 
worrying about things.

Second, you seem to be pulling days individually from DataDirect.  Don't 
do that.  Add the '--dd-grab-all' option to the command you told 
mythbackend to use for mythfilldatabase, and all 14 days of guide data 
will be pulled in one large chunk.  It's much easier on their servers, 
and it ensures you always have good guide data, rather than the standard 
method of only pulling the next and last days independently.
