You should certainly be able to get listing data for most of the freesat
channels from the xmltv radio times grabber.
Make sure you have a complete channel list to pass to the grabber - mine
is /home/mythtv/.mythtv/DVB-S.xmltv and contains the information below...
Also check that you have set the xmltv id's for all your channels - you
can check this in mythweb settings -> TV -> channel info.
