I have mine set in an early-morning cron job that runs before I run
the grabber and mythfilldatabase populate new TV listings. This should
help to ensure the DB is in a good state before adding new listings.
The Radio Times updates its data daily in the early morning. Running
the tv_grab_uk_rt grabber after 0600 should pick up the most recent
updates for that day.
