You'll have to scan again. You should have six transports, one of which is 
nowadays reserved for HD.

Do a scan on *one* of your existing transports and there's a box to tick for 
using info about additional transports; I forget the exact words. That should 
get you what you want.

As the other responder said, the radio schedules don't come via xmltv. You have 
to use EIT for them.
