That message doesn't mean as much as it seems to mean.  IIRC, MythTV 
only compares the date/time of the farthest-in-the-future listing before 
and after the fill and if there's nothing farther in the future after 
the fill, it will display the message.  So that message can occur if 
your grabber normally gets 10-14 days of data and on one fill happened 
to get 14, but then doesn't get additional for a few days or 
whatever--meaning it may just go away after a few days.

Alternatively, I've seen people here who somehow got a single listing 
years in the future and saw that message until they deleted that errant 
show.  I think if you look at MythWeb's Listings page and click the date 
drop down, it will list the long-in-the-future date if one exists.
