It's a start. Although I'm not sure about "100% Babes" or "18 Plus XXX" ;).

In reply to AJM, perhaps a little wget-fu can strip icons from the web 
page for local storage. But I agree, a proper cross reference list would 
be the correct way to do this.

In the UK, one problem seems to be that the Radio Times callsigns and 
channel ids don't match (often) the XML info. If I do a (clean) channel 
scan, then run mfdb, I get every channel duplicated. Much handcrafting 
then ensues to get the right info into the right channel records. You 
always miss one or two. Or someone decides to change something. It would 
be nice to spend some time figuring out real problems for a change, 
rather than having to keep tweaking the database.

And I can't believe that these issues are local to the UK.
