Yup, I think you've got it. I've never had overnight problems of that sort. Myth
should only do a scan when you ask it to. If you think myth is rescanning, that
implies to me that your database is getting reversed somehow. You don't happen
to have a rogue overnight backup script which is restoring instead, do you?
Another possibility is that the scan updates aren't sticking, but as far as I
know, the back end reads tuner info only at startup. This would imply that your
back end is restarting every night, as well as some kind of database problem.
