FYI, after looking at the code, it doesn't verify per channel (see
fillData() function in mythfilldatabase). Are you sure that the channels you
get with shorter data aren't just refreshing todays and tomorrows data?

I'm assuming you use tv_grab_combiner, and that it isn't your grabber than
handles this for you, or that you have multiple sources using different
grabbers. :)
