Hi, i did some minor alterations to the script by
/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 0 /etc/cvsupfile # Keep quiet except for errors
/usr/local/sbin/portsdb -Uu > /dev/null # Hopefully, show only errors
/bin/echo "Updated ports:"
/usr/local/sbin/portversion | grep "<" # Show only changed ports
but strangly, at least for me, is that the 2nd line the output is not being redirected to /dev/null and if i execute this script i still get lots of output...

No. If in doubt, redirect to files instead of to /dev/null.
