First, keep in mind the current data feed *NEVER*  flags a show as a 
rerun.  There isn't even a field to do it.

1. It can flag a show as *new*  (not new is not necessarily a rerun)
2. It can set a unique program-id. (it uses a generic-id when it doesn't 
have any details)
3. It can provide the "original air date"

As as been mentioned on this list there were problems with the data 
server giving outdated (typically generic) information.  This was fixed 
Wed around 7pm EDT.

Wed 4/15 01:45 EDT - Had generic data for Survivor (SH* program id)
Wed 4/15 17:06 EDT - Has  current data (flagged new)
Thu  4/16 11:49 EDT -  Has current data (flagged new)

I wonder if your MythTV box downloaded any data after 7pm Wed.

When you say you just refreshed data, did you look at the raw downloaded 
data or just check your MythTV box?  I think SD has been correct since 
7pm Wed.
