Comment(by Craig Arno <craig at arno.com>):

 Replying to [comment:4 danielk]:
 > it is either a config issue, or the Schedules Direct lineup is missing
 the digital channels (the ones in the form of 4-1, 89-10, etc.). Those
 channels should be present in over-the-air lineups. With Cable TV you have
 to manually set the xmltvid's.

 Actually, I have set around 60 of these so far.  Some update, some don't.
 I haven't figured out why some don't update.  I verified no typo's in the
 XMLID, so there is something missing that isn't in any documentation I've
 found to date.  Mythfilldatabase doesn't seem to produce immediate visible
 results on my system.  I'll try the user groups before posting another
 ticket, since this is using developer time.

 It would be handy to have a page explaining mythfilldatabase options, and
 when it is appropriate to use them.  I tried --help and still don't know
 when to apply the options.  I randomly tried a few I thought might help,
 and I can't tell if they did.  For instance, do I use --update to force
 use of entered XMLID's?  There isn't any direct information in --help to
 cause me to make this functional association.  If this is what it's used
 for, it would be nice to have the "XMLID" tag in the --help description.

 Thanks for listening.
