Your config.xml is empty.  Fix it or delete it and then run mythtv-setup 
to have it create a new/proper one for you.

Then, try logging in to the Schedules Direct website and clicking on the 
"Re-Add All Lineups" link ( https://www.schedulesdirect.org/lineups/readd ).

When you test mythfilldatabase, please, from now on (at least until you 
get one successful run), always use --dd-grab-all.  Also, you may want 
to use --dd-grab-all all the time.  See
for details about --dd-grab-all . After performing the 2 steps above, 
feel free to try mythfilldatabase --dd-grab-all to test.

If it still doesn't work, see 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/526599#526599 and 
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/520484#520484 for 
some other issues users have had recently that caused mfdb failures.  
(Note: I take no responsibility for the terrible quoting/attribution in 
those threads, but you should be able to find the relevant information 
from the posts specified--it's just not nearly as easy as it should be 
had users properly quoted and deleted irrelevant info.)
