 This is dependent on when you actually run mythfilldatabase (i.e. it won't
 have much effect if you run it at 11PM for example, but it does have an
 effect if you run it in the early hours of the morning).

 Whenever I run mythfilldatabase, it skips over day 0 (the current day) as
 there is already data in the database, but always grabs program data for
 the next day (day 1). However this means that you could potentially miss
 out on very late changes in guide data for the current day, as its relying
 on guide data that was published one day ago (when today was day 1),
 rather than published the same day.

 For example, Press Association data for the UK, which is used by many UK
 XMLTV grabbers is updated at approx 05:30AM UK time
 3Few/iGZkjaRPBhUJ), and so I schedule my Mythfilldatabase to run at 6:00
 daily, however because it's skipping over day 0, the data for that day is
 always 1 day old unless I manually over-ride it.

 So if we're Always grabbing data for day 1 (as it's closest), shouldn't we
 grab data for day 0 as well?
