Just a guess, but try setting your $HOME variable to point to /root (if 
that's where your .mythtv stuff is located) before running 
mythfilldatabase.

export HOME=/root ; /usr/local/bin/mythfilldatabase

-Reza

p.s. I've never seen the syntax for crontab that you have.  What's that 
root doing in there?
