Hi all,

I try to get xmltv to work with Radio Times. I followed the instructions from
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Uk_xmltv, but it doesn't seem to work for me.

tv_grab_uk_rt --list-channels gives me a list of channels in XML format. So far so good, the service seems to be up.
Then I ran tv_grab_uk_rt --configure, confirmed the default settings apart from my postcode and the TV platform and copied the config file to ~/.mythtv/uk_rt.xmltv

The xmltv ids I entered into my channel table by using the updateid script from http://parker1.co.uk/mythtv_id.php

Now, when I run mythfilldatabase I get the following error(s)

2011-04-11 14:46:30.878 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host: localhost
XMLTV requires a Date::Manip timezone of +0000 to work properly.
Current Date::Manip timezone is 1.
2011-04-11 14:46:32.767 FillData, Error: xmltv returned error code 65280
2011-04-11 14:46:32.767 Error in 1:1: unexpected end of file

I googled for the error 65280 and only found posts where somebody mentions that the service was down. But since 
tv_grab_uk_rt --list-channels works, it looks like the problem lies somewhere else.

I'm running 0.24+fixes from the Mythbuntu autobuild repos. If reqiured I can post the whole output from mythfilldatabase and my uk_rt.xmltv...

Thanks for reading
