I'm the guy that was having the problem, so here's the fix I'm using

edit the mythtv source for mythtv/programs/mythfilldatabase/filldata.cpp

For me it's line 2875, but I'm not using a current cvs version.  Do a
search for "%d 18" (minus quotes) and replace the 18 with 21.
Unfortunately I have to do this for every cvs update I make, but once
done I no longer have problems.

Sure some newly added days to the schedule have NO DATA after 9pm, but
it updates it when there is data, so it never gets to the point that I
have NO DATA on the current day.

Hope this helps.
