Thanks Steve,

That certainly rules out a few things and it's encouraging to know that
Schedules Direct will work if I set it up right.

I wonder what I've done wrong?  I changed the channel-id-format to mythtv
but as you suspected, that didn't make a difference.

I'll look into the version of xmltv that I'm using and maybe how I've
configured it.  I've always just selected channels rather than lineups, but
I can't see how would change anything?
