Ok, I've found out what the problem is/was.... In the channel table, the
channum field was set to chann for the Channel 4 and Channel 5 entries and
other shortened text strings for the others. Changing these to the actual
channel numbers has fixed it. Here is the record for one of the channels.
(only one channel given here but there is an entry for each terestrial
ChannID 1000 (increments for each channel)
name Channel 4
Icon path to icon (displays ok in mythepg)
Is this parculiar to the uk xmltv grab or am I doing something wrong.
Also does anyone know what I need to add to theme.txt or settings.txt to get
the fancy OSD themes. The epg display is using blue, but the OSD still shows
the default display.
Thanks for the help, started saving for the new PC and also designing a
special IR xmitter for the cable box which uses a proprietary IR format :(
