Ditto Wendy's thanks. 5+ channels were just overwritten on my system which 
resulted in a few swear words. Fixing the broken schedules, icon paths and 
xmltvids is/was starting to become a real pain.

I'm compiling now with the above lines commented out - hopefully that will fix 
the issue for now, although it will prevent me from auto-scanning the new E4 
channel due to launch on Friday :(

Personally I think the relevant patches should be reversed until a working 
implementation has been created. The current code is seriously flawed.
