[mythtv-users] mythfilldatabase shows No Data for some channels

I'm having some trouble with the proper way to run mythfilldatabase (with 
DataDirect) to update my listings. Right now it runs every day from cron and 
it gets listings 14 days into the future. However, some of the channels come 
back as "No Data" at around 12-14 days (I guess the listings for those 
channels aren't known that far into the future). As the days pass, this data 
propagates closer and closer to the present, even though mythfilldatabase 
runs every night. It doesn't re-retrieve the data for the days that are 
missing though, saying for example: "Data is already present for Fri Jul 15 
2005, skipping".

What can I do to tell mythfilldatabase to retrieve data for the days that 
are missing?

Right now I have to run mythtv-setup and clear all my program information 
(or manually delete it from MySQL), and then run mythfilldatabase so that it 
re-retrieves everything. Is there some way to automate this?
