Wait for it...

Oh.  Now I can't say it.  :)

I recommend looking at the DD-format "raw" data.  You can download it
using tv_grab_na_dd from XMLTV 0.5.48.  If there's data there for that
channel, it's your setup (and let us know and we'll help you fix it). 
If there's no data there, it's TMS.

If you need help figuring out how the DD data works, let me know. 
Basically, it identifies channels in one section and then programs in
another, so you'll have to "link" up the programs with the channel to
see if there are any listings for that channel.
