FWIW, Mike was telling people that if they use tv_grab_na_dd to get 
data, they should /never/ let it convert the data to XMLTV format or 
they will break their data/lose information.

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/515732#515732 was the 
post, note that it said:
No, that will break your data. No one should /ever/ use mythfilldatabase 
--file with Schedules Direct data. 

And then I followed up to say that there's no need to do that if your 
problem is the one that had been identified as being caused by the @ in 
a Schedules Direct username, since you could change the username.

Regardless of what version MythTV was compiled against, the version it's 
run against will determine if you encounter the Qt bug.  So, since 
you've updated to 4.8.2, you don't have the @ bug.
