You can use something like:

$ mysql -u mythtv -p mythconverg -e "SELECT
chanid,name,xmltvid,useonairguide FROM channel WHERE useonairguide =
'1' ORDER BY name;"

This will list any channels that are set to get EIT listings. Might
make it easier to pinpoint channels that are causing problems.

A remote possibility might be that there are two mythfilldatabase
updates occuring using two different XMLTV configs - one having the
tsod.plus-1.more4.channel4.com ID, and the other having the
plus-1.more4.channel4.com ID. This could occur if you run two
differently-configured instances of MFDB manually, or if you have
MythTV running MFDB automatically whilst a separate instance of MFDB
runs manually via a script etc.
