Good.  That's the right way to "ignore" channels--by telling zap2it not 
to send them to you instead of telling MythTV to hide the channels after 
you download the listings for them.

Is it like this for all days?  I would have guessed that--if nothing 
else--tomorrow would show data (as mythfilldatabase downloads tomorrow's 
data by default in case of updates).

If all days have data except today, just run:

mythfilldatabase --refresh-today

(you may also want to run "mythfilldatabase --help" to see some of the 
other options).  If only tomorrow has data, you can either get it 
"tomorrow" (i.e. each day, tomorrow and the day after the last day of 
your data will be downloaded, so you'll get the next 10-12 days "just in 
time" and from then on, you'll have the data) or you can clear the 
programs table and download it all again.
