Well, the full log was quite a bit of data and it appeared to be pretty
redundant. I thought I would post what appeared relevant in the hopes that
it would be an easy fix. Further, after posting the much longer logs above,
I was notified that it needed to be approved by a mythtv-users moderator
before it could be posted.

But back on topic, does anybody have any ideas as to how I could fix this?
I'm on day three with no tv listings.
