The 404 is fine, it fails, then it sends the login and gets the  
info... It sounds like it's downloading and adding the data to the  
database too. I believe the issue is the lack of capture device.  
Until you have a tuner card to associate with the listings, your  
program guide is going to be empty because though you have the data,  
none of those channels are actually "available"

I believe that as soon as you install a capture card, you will be  
able to attach it to those listings and be all set.

Not going to spoonfeed you, gotta modify your keymappings and remote  
definitions. Go google LIRC
