...or you could run mythfilldatabase from the commandline to
watch the output to see if it grabs the days with missing data.

As mentioned elsewhere, go into your EPG and press END several
times to go to the last day. Look to see exactly when that data
runs out. The existing code will work if the partial day ends
in the middle of the night, morning or afternoon. As long as there
isn't much data data after 6pm it will refill. If you get data
until 8pm then nothing from 9-midnight, that would suck. I can't
believe anyone would cutoff the data in the middle of primetime,
not even Canadians! ;-)

That's the beauty of CVS, when you do a update it just merges any
differences. Let me know a little more about exactly what happens
on your partial days. There might be a reasonable solution.
