In schedules direct if you hover over the channel you will get a pop-up
showing the xmltvid field. copy that number into the xmltvid field of
MythTV channel. If you like you chan change the channel number as well so
instead of 78.12 you see 78 or what ever. this is easiest from mythweb.
Once you have the xmltvid in the channel and that Schedules direct linup
applied to tuner mythfilldatabase will pull the right guide data down.
