Have you got the scanwiz radio patch in ? I assume you have. If so, I
seem to remember
thatI also fixed the EPG to work as well. 

There should be some changes in siparser.cpp to get it to work. If
you've done something different let me know and I'll point you at the
appropriate lines.

I was going to update the patch but I've got distracted  away from it.
