I'm running mythtv SVN 14374 (9/1/07) and probe does not seem to work
for me.  I was manually browsing channels in "Watch TV", hitting e to
edit the channel.  When I input the correct call sign and hit Probe,
nothing happens.  I downloaded the XMLTV listings using tv_grab_na_dd
--download-only, pulled the XMLTVID's from the resulting file, and put
them in the channel editor.  Now it works, but I don't know why Probe
