I'd suggest disabling mythfilldatabase from within MythTV temporarily
and running it from the command line, to see if the temporal
irregularity is occuring in the grabber, or in the import process. You
can first run the grabber to get the XML datafiles (the process that
grabs the datafiles from the RT website), and then once that has
finished, run mythfilldatabase, pointing at the XML files, to import
the data into the MythTV database. I've also installed a cache for
XMLTV so that if files have not changed on the RT site, local copies
of the files are utilised instead of downloading another copy.
