Yes, you're incorrect!

tv_grab_uk_rt simply obtains programme listing information and
timings.  It provides no tuning data.

The listing is associated with tuned channels by you manually setting
the xmltvid for each channel.  But see the recent thread on Freeview
retuning, which includes a few scripts for automating the process.

The programme is mythtv-setup.  I'm not sure about its logging
facility but if you run it from a console then you can catch any
messages output to the terminal.  Maybe there are options to increase
its verbosity.
