[mythtv-users] DVB in the UK (EPG)

Can only let you know how I get on with my set-up.  I receive Freeview from
Rowridge on the Island of wight and I am using a poor antenna (its bad
enough that my normal Freeview box often skips and splutters and
ocasiionally cannot tune a particaular MUX)

I run tv_grab_dvb once a day and I have NEVER had it not work.  Ocasioanally
it wont get data for a channel on a MUX other than the one tuned to but on
the whole its very fast and very reliable.

I would like a few more categories and not all programs get subtitles but I
am delighted on the whole.

I am using a NOVA-T card and tv-grab-dvb-0.9 for reference

Any more info required on my setup then please do ask

I've read a number of posts stating how poor the EPG broadcast with the DVB
signal is, and that everyone uses the ukrt (radio times) list.  My problem
is i dont have internet access at home to download these listings, so my
question is, is the broadcast EPG really that terrible to the point that it
is unusable?

If not then i'll go out and buy a DVB card tomorrow :)
