Thanks for the response Nick but I'm afraid that is the final straw for 
me wrt to Live TV on Myth.  I'm perfectly happy to compile a custom 
kernel and do whatever hackery required to get my hardware working in 
Myth but life is too short to sit for hours cutting and pasting xmlids 
and deleting entiries from second xml files just to get a channel listing.

It's a real shame because apart from trying to sort out my channels 
everything else has been pretty straight forward on Myth.
