You shouldn't run it as a cronjob at all-- you should allow the
backend to spawn it, which allows Schedules Direct to communicate the
next run time to load balance (and in turn give you better
performance).  You can limit the window in which this occurs.  All
those settings are in the "General" section of mythtv-setup.

But yes, you would add those arguments to the "mythfilldatabase
arguments" field in mythtv-setup.
