What listings source? If you're using Schedules Direct, you should
really use --dd-grab-all , and just get all the data they have in one
download to make sure you always have the most-current data for every
day of listings.
for details about --dd-grab-all .

Yes--because it hurts nothing and allows viewing/parsing/processing of
logging information from anywhere on the network, using--for
example--the Python bindings or the MythTV Services API. Note that it's
cleaned up for you automatically, too, so it really causes no extra work
