I don't believe I use the Retreive Lineup button on my QAM HD lineup.  I 
just added the lineup, tied it to the tuner, then scanned for channels 
and set the XMLTVIDs.  Once that is done, mythfilldatabase and the guide 
information was there.  You should try using the frontend channel editor 
to be sure the IDs are right.
