I didn't notice it Sunday, but now you've got me worried... At around
midnight Eastern time last night I was getting ready for bed and
happened to notice MythWelcome said the next recording was on
Thursday. I thought it odd that I didn't have anything scheduled for
Wednesday, but didn't think too much of it... then I suddenly
remembered that I had specifically scheduled Oprah to record today (my
girlfriend, who is a Naturopathic Doctor, said there is supposed to be
a segment on homeopathy or something). So I checked the Upcoming
Recordings and found that Oprah was stated as "Not Listed." So I
checked the Guide and saw what you described: a whole lot of NO DATA.
I reran mfdb manually and it repopulated everything, fortunately.

But now I wonder just what I've missed in the last few days. We've not
been watching much in the last week or so, due to a family emergency.
