I don't see that happen often. If it's a frequent problem, I suggest
scheduling your daily mythfilldatabase update to happen at an appropriate
time of day to be most likely to catch the updates.

I'm mostly just living with it. I have some channels for which the guide is
often offset by 1 or 3 hours, as if in the wrong timezone. If there's a show
I want on one of those channels, I just set it to record whatever show is in
the offset timeslot.
The funniest examples of wrong listings is the TV Guide channel, here it's off
by 3 hours. The content that channel shows in the top half of the screen is 3
hours behind the schedule they show in the bottom half of the screen. :)
