Hi Craig.

I am in the same boat as you.  I have switched to bleb, but it is 
missing a lot of channels

I would suggest that you register your interest in a paid XMLTV service 
by emailing sales at tvcompass.com, and state that you run an open source 
PVR solution and that you are looking for a reliable, upto date source 
of XMLTV listings data.

TVCompass currently provide RadioTimes listings data to PDAs, and they 
are currently considering providing the data in other formats.

Individual emails to them asking if they will provide this service will 
hopefully push them along!
