I seem to frequently see this error when I check the status in MythTv
(through my frontend) - the old "mythfilldb ran, but didn't insert any
data..." error. In fact, when I checked last night it said that. However
checking this morning (via mythweb) it says everything is fine and there
is guide data for 13 days.
I've not tried running it manually when I've seen these errors and it has
always fixed itsself after a day or so. I just assumed it was RT not
updating the files.
