Shepherd suggests to run a hourly cronjob of mythfilldatabase with 
graboption --daily which means "only do something once around every 
24h". Maybe that's because cron on linux usually sucks or whatever.

The correct setup is, of course, to just pick shephard as the grabber
and let the master backend call it once a day and do the usual thing.

I do that with a backend that shuts down when idle and it "just works".

indeed :)
