This isn't an issue with tv_grab_uk_rt. Unless channels are manually
configured to use the Radio Times provided +1 listings, the grabber
manufactures all "+x" listings from the regular channel listings (this
is what the "tsod" prefix on IDs denotes). Additionally, as
tv_grab_uk_rt caches downloads, source listings are only download once
for any channel having listings based of it (e.g. ITV2, ITV +2 on Sky,
ITV2 +1 on Freeview).
