How do you do that?  I've been holding back on upgrading MythTV to the
magic DVB auto-tuning versions because I don't want to lose the
ability to record the radio...

They are.

I merge them in manually like this

./tv_grab_dvb -c -s -d -t 60 > dvb_epg.xml
mythfilldatabase --no-delete --update --file 2 -1 dvb_epg.xml

The chanidents file contains just this line (I only record radio 4)

14528 fm.radio-4.bbc.co.uk

I collect all other EPG data using tv_grab_uk_rt.

I can't help you with this I'm afraid!  Do post to the list if and
when you get it all working I'd be very interested to know how!
