Hey, thanks for the reply and thanks for reminding me of Mythweb, I hadn't 
played with it yet...

Anyway, I am in Canada and I am using the Zap2It grabber. The freqid column 
is indeed populated and all the channel labels are correct so its not that. 
At least one more potential cause is eliminated...

Thanks again
