You have to call the channel what zap2it wants to call it! Even though
what zap2it calls it is NOT what the station calls itself!
If you go to Watch TV, tune the channel then push 'E' to edit, you can
change the data to KECIDT in the top line, clear the other lines, then
press 'P' to probem and I would bet that it will give you your XMLTVID.
