In reverse order:-

1.  Live TV and manual recording both function.

2.  /Backend setup/Capture card/Setup/Recorder options/
/Use DVB for active EIT scan is enabled.

3.  /usr/share/doc/mythtv-backend/contrib/maintenance/optimize_mythdb.pl

generates screenfulls of	"Repaired/Optimized nnnnn"
			"Analyzed nnnnn"
messages, doesn't indicate any errors BUT I now have programme guide 
information again - magic.

I now understand a little more about the structure of MythTV and have some new 
directories to explore.

Thanks all for your patience and help.
