Thanks for your reply.
I toyed with my antennae and now my channels show up! I can watch tv now!
...but back to the guide...
After I sent this email, I went and changed my ip address to the loopback
just to see if that did anything. ...it didn't.
However, I did find a post at:
That helped....turns out even though I gave it my zip and chose a lineup
when registering my account at SD, I had to log in at SD again and choose
the lineup again. ??
Now I run mythfilldatabase and it gives me:

...however, I still have no guide data. :(
I have entered a path of /var/log/mythtv/mythfilldatabase.log via the gui,
but I'm not getting a log generated when I re-run mythfilldatabase.

It looks like you are connecting to schedulesdirect. The error you get
that says "Unauthorized, Reusing existing connection" is the same as I
get, I think it's just refusing multiple connections. Mine gets all the
channels just fine. I'm also using mythbuntu.
What I found is that once I changed my IP address from the loopback
address to another, I had to add the 'mythtv' user to mysql as
connecting from '192.168.0.*'. Until I did that, I couldn't connect.
So in my case the problem was that mysql was refusing the connection due
to the IP address change.
