What listings source?  If you're using Schedules Direct, you should 
really use --dd-grab-all , and just get all the data they have in one 
download to make sure you always have the most-current data for every 
day of listings.

for details about --dd-grab-all .

Yes--because it hurts nothing and allows viewing/parsing/processing of 
logging information from anywhere on the network, using--for 
example--the Python bindings or the MythTV Services API.  Note that it's 
cleaned up for you automatically, too, so it really causes no extra work 
for you.
