This happens to me fairly regularly. I am also on Shaw. Usually it is
data for Saturday or Sunday that doesn't get pulled down at all, or is
missing large chunks of programming. Doing a "delete from program" in
mysql, followed by a mythfilldatabase always fixes it. That is a bit of
a sledgehammer approach though.
I never see any errors from mythfilldatabase and even waiting for many
more days to pass, the holes don't get filled in. I was starting to
think that this was a timing thing. My mythfilldatabase runs out of
cron.daily at 6:25 am MDT.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'm interested.
