Run it manually (as the -v XMLTV indicates the
command would be), and it should tell you what
it is doing (due to some artifacts, the -v XMLTV output
is only produced when the grabber completes,
but when run interactively STDERR output should
be seen reasonably often and indicate progress
of some form or the other).

Note, as Bill mentions, the first run on a new
largish, as most cable lineups are, videosource
can take a very very long time to complete as
both the grabber, and your mythtv database
has to update a lot of entries.  Later runs tend
to take less time because only changes need
to be updated (the grabber caches previous
retrieved content, and the database only needs
to update new/changed content).
