I'm using the uk_rt grabber, which run manually every few days because
I don't really need data more than 7 days ahead.

The grabber gives out errors due to channel data not matching the
channels ids.  In January there were only two non-matching channels;
that number has gradually increased and now there are about a dozen.  
None of them are channels that I recognise and the grab and
mythfilldatabase complete correctly.

Maybe these errors are something to do with the 'unsuccessful' message'?

(I tried to update the channel ids file, but it appears to exist on
the radio times web site, rather than on my machine)
