Question Schedules Direct update interval increased to 24 hours

I have been using Schedules Direct since the summer of 2017 without any issues. The last six weeks or so, however, whenever I look at the System Information screen I've noticed that the time referenced by the Next EPG Update In: value always adds up to 24 hours after the Last EPG Update: value, whereas it seemed to be something on the order of every 4 hours in the past. The program guide is still being updated correctly and extends for the same period of time (~17 days), it's just the update interval is much longer now.

The only changes I've made are last month I did a couple Full Channel Scans on my lone lineup due to over-the-air channels in my area moving to new frequencies. I took a look at my and found these values...
...which I see correspond to 4 hours and 24 hours, respectively, in milliseconds. I looked at some backups, though, and found that's what those values have always been.

I looked through my log files and didn't find anything unexpected during the EPG update section. Is there some other setting that controls these update intervals? Is that interval determined solely by the client, or does the Schedules Direct server specify when the client should check back again?
