Thanks for answering, I appreciate your suggestion about
installing and configuring mythweb.  Solving the HD-3000
DVB driver problems just seemed to be enough of a burden
without adding any extras, such as mythweb.

I do have all the XMLTV IDs written down, so I can give
your alternative idea a try.  At least, it would be a starting
place, just to see if it's possible to get the Guide Data and
try to record using it.

Thanks again for your help.
