   I think, by default, I typically get "refreshed" for "tomorrow's" 
data, as I'm fetching my "12 days worth" on the daily run... the problem 
here, though, is that the data that is sent on "refresh" does not gibe 
with what is listed on their html service.  It's like the "updates" on 
their listing service no longer replace/update the data in their 
DataDirect stream.... thus, we never get it.  We do, indeed, get a 
'refresh' of "tomorrow", but it's not the current schedule data.   If 
you were to clear out all of the MythTV listing data entirely, and 
download anew, it'd still be wrong.

   As long as they are aware of the issue, and are actively working on 
it, I guess that's all we can ask for, eh?  :)
