So at 4.00AM nothing should be running, neither recording nor watching and it should update the EPG, but it is not done.

It's my understanding that mythfilldatabase should update this for you.
You could try setting it to run mythfilldatabse on start up in
mythtv-setup in the General > Shutdown / Wakeup Options.
