Think I may have made a snafu here. Although OFCOM gave ITV Plc 6

The next question is: which variant do HD viewers /not/ in these
regions get? Before Meridian and Central started FTA transmission
recently, they received one or the other of London or Granada (I'm
guessing which was was based on proximity).

I'll get some updates for uk_rt committed that should change this for

Remember you'll need to update the XMLTV config as well as the channel
config in MythTV.
