My mythtv tv schedule does't update itself. How do I make mythfilldatabase run on a schedule?

Glad you two posted this, I was just about to go into Myth and schedule updates.  As that apparently doesn't work, I just created this file:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 59 2008-05-03 00:35 /etc/cron.daily/mythfilldatabase

With this in it:

#!/bin/sh
#
# mythfilldatabase
#
/usr/bin/mythfilldatabase

If mythfilldatabase should have additional flags, please let me (us) know.
