[mythtv-users] Missing guide data for HGTVC

I ran tv_grab_na_dd --download-only --dd-data foo and examined foo

I found the station listing for the xmltvid and also found programs
(<schedule program=EPsomethingorother station=17638...>) segments, so I
guess there's something wrong with my setup?

I think I just answered my own question - I noticed that my xmltv-util
package was only 0.5.44, so I updated it before running tv_grab_na_dd.

After I found the XML data I was looking for, I ran mythfilldatabase and
voila! I had guide data.

What puzzles me is that mythfilldatabase was grabbing guide data from
SD, but xmltv was trying to grab from TMS before I updated it.

But it's working, so thanks for the help.
