Ok, that is indeed my question. And I'm not seeing what you suggest. Rather it
seems that mythfilldatabase is getting the following day only. It doesn't
indicate that its having any trouble either. Wasn't there some setting that
controlled how many days of programming it kept? Maybe it was during the build
stage? In any case, any suggestions on where to look for trouble? I was able to
use tv_grab_na to grab 7 days worth of listings (using my
$HOME/.mythtv/DirecTV.xmltv as the config file) into a file. Then I invoked
mythfilldatabase with the input file options and it happily parsed the file into
the myth database.
