Also using SD in the UK, I get days ranging from 9 to 20. SD uses filler 
data ("To Be Announced"), mythtv status on guide days can be a bit 

If you want to find out for each channel how much real data there is in 
the mythconverg db try this sql (all one line):

select MAX(program.endtime) AS 
"Last_End_Date",channel.name,channel.channum, channel.chanid, 
channel.xmltvid, DATEDIFF(MAX(program.endtime), NOW()) as 
Guide_Days_Remaining,channel.sourceid from program left join channel on 
channel.chanid = program.chanid where program.title<>"To Be Announced" 
and channel.xmltvid<>''  group by chanid order by Last_End_Date, name;
