As for your question about why it's saying data refresh is needed, 
that's an algorithm that determines whether or not to request 
information for a specific day from Schedules Direct.  A /much/ better 
approach is for you to tell MythTV to get all the information in a 
single call.  It's lower-resource for TMS (since it's done as a single 
request--instead of up to 14 separate, but similar requests that require 
similar processing).  It also means that you'll always have the 
most-up-to-date information possible.

See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/449426#449426 for 
more details, including how to properly enable it.
