Interesting to hear.

However I've been pretty underwhelmed with the RT data, so I'll be  
sticking with EIT for now. The source of the RT program ids are still a  
mystery to me but I now think that EIT crids are going to be the way of  
the future.

I rarely watch Ch 5 but pick up a lot of old stuff from Dave and they're a  
nuisance. As you say, they interleave season & episodes and I was hoping  
of watching them in some sort of order for a change.
