[mythtv-users] Issues with guide.xml & channels.conf (Sydney, AU)

I finally got my Myth box connected to TV card. I installed my Compro
Videomate DVB-T300 yesterday and got it working. Currently I am only
able to get ABC, 7 & Ten due to my aerial being a high band, not a wide
band. Strangely enough, it is pointed at Illawarra for my analog
channels but picks up digital from Gore Hill, not Illawarra!
I have a guide.xml produced by the new rex.pl script (thanks BTW,
excellent stuff!) which defines the channels as ABC, ABC2, Nine, SBS, 7
But, when I created my channels.conf via dvbscan, it returns things like
ABC TV Sydney, 7 Digital 1, Ten Digital 1 etc etc. After I imported
channels.conf into Myth and then did a mythfilldatabase --file 0 -1
/home/mythtv/guide.xml, nothing matches up and the channels as defined
in the guide.xml are included. I tried setting the ones imported via
channels.conf to the XMLTV ID's (abc.free.au, seven.free.au etc defined
in running the rex script) but that does not seem to work - nothing
shows on the Guide pages.
Am I doing something wrong? Can someone fill me in on the right way to
do things? Does anyone have a channels.conf that either defines north
shore channels or the illawarra channels (or both)?
Getting so close to having this work. My wife is even open to getting a
new aerial as she can now see the potential. She wants Rove recorded as
she misses it due to us watching something else, and my kids have
ordered the Simpsons. I recorded Spicks & Specks on a manual recording
so it happened while I was out walking the dog. When I got back I showed
her and she was impressed.
Anyway, I would appreciate any assistance
