A related note - I've just put through an update for the uk_rt XMLTV
grabber (CVS head, not yet in a release) so that all channels
supported by the grabber now have valid channel icon URLs in the
channel_ids file

I keep a close eye on this file to make sure it is as up to date as
possible, so if this helps anyone in addition to Steve's mythalsig
app, please make use of the information.

I've also now compiled a comprehensive list of channels supported by
the uk_rt grabber for UK analogue, freeview, Sky Digital and ntl
Digital providers, which I'll be uploading soon. (This information is
intended for use with Justin Hornsby's proposed application I
mentioned above which should be it a very simple process to add the
Sky or ntl lienups (and icons for Freeview).
