You're welcome.

My first point was that we really want to do this so that we
know that the scheduler will be working with the current info
and then...

...take the time to explore and fix things once the new listings
are in place.

To all other North American myth users. all the other tangents
in this thread aside, please focus on this info that is beneficial
to you:

- All of your grabs until Saturday morning had inaccuracies
and all your listings for the next two weeks were bad.

- Running "mythfilldatabase --refresh-all" sometime this
weekend (more than ten minutes after the hour and at least
five minutes before the hour) will absolutely overwrite the
known to be bad data with known to be good data.

- Take the time to examine any changes you may have made in
the past two weeks to compensate for bad listings and examine
your Upcoming Recordings and recording rules once you've
received your complete, up to date TV listings data.

Hope this helps,
