sounds like my setup - I'm still on 0.16 though

can you run:
  dpkg-query -s xmltv
That'll get the xmltv version.

it sounds like a mis-mapping between the xmltv ids used in myth and 
those used in tv_grab_uk_rt.
You may need to upgrade xmltv (latest is version 0.5.39-2 I think)

Do you have mysql control centre running anywhere? It'll let you examine 
the myth database tables.
(It runs on windows boxes too)

FYI, here's the script my cronjob runs:
FILE=/myth/listings/"tv_`date +%Y-%b-%d`.xml"
tv_grab_uk_rt > $FILE
if [ \( $? -eq 0 \) -a \( -f "$FILE" \) ]
  mythfilldatabase --no-delete --file 7 -1 $FILE
  echo tv_grab_uk_rt Failed

my xmltv config is attached for a few of the sky channels
