What are you using for guide data?   It almost sounds like a "resched" is
never happening for you.  Mythbackend, itself, does not automatically run
the scheduler to populate the upcoming recordings.  That is left the
whatever is handling populating the guide data.

Next time it happens, see if "mythutil --resched" "fixes" the problem.
