The first run after setup is expected to take long. I don't
know what "hours" above means. It it was 2, then I'd wait
longer. Especially if you've got lots of channels.

named something like mythXXXXXX should exist. If the grabber
is working, then the file will be growing in size.
Or, you could type: tail -f /tmp/mythXXXXXX and watch the
data come in. XXXXXX will change each time the grabber is run
(and is unlikely to ever be XXXXXX).
