I'm not sure it this is relevant, but as a heads up - there is (or
was) a bug in tv_grab_uk_rt which meant that when it is run *not*
inside a terminal window (eg run from cron (or possibly mythtv) then
tv_grab_uk_rt doesn't append the <\tv> to the end of its output, and
mythfilldatabase chokes on the xmltv data, producing the "no programs
found in data" error message.

Maybe this bug has just appeared in the packaged version of xmltv?


Apologies in advance if this is a red-herring.
