[mythtv-users] Video Source with no grabber

I've configured a video source with a single channel for use when
recording from a VCR or whatever. I've noticed that mythfilldatabase is
being run for 14 days for the video source (as it never has any data).
I had set up the listings grabber for the source to be the DataDirect
grabber, but did not specify a user ID/password/lineup, thinking that
would keep it from running. Instead, mfdb still sends requests, and
they receive 401's because of the invalid user ID/password.
I tried changing the configuration to see if there's an option for "no
grabber", but there wasn't. Is there any way to prevent mfdb from
running for a video source, or are my only options creating a fake
tv_grab_whatever script (that gives mfdb nothing) and patching Myth to
provide a "no grabber" option in Video Source setup?
