But in fact generally only one of those (the one at 3AM) every actually produces any update in my Guide data, since the Zap2it database is apparently not updated continuously but rather only once a day at most.
Furthermore, sometimes (e.g. typically over a weekend) days may go by with no actually update. The "outer limit" of the Guide will seemingly remain unchanged for days, becoming fewer and fewer days worth of genuine active Guide data until the weekend passes and magically the update process once again seems to be alive again.
It's not unexpected or unusual to have bursts of inactivity in the Guide being updated like this. Best case... looks like about 11 days into the future.
Yes, not having all 11 days all the time is frustrating when you want to schedule an upcoming show or series. But in my experience this process will eventually "self-correct" and the ongoing true Guide update will resume and you'll once again eventually have 11 days worth of live data.
