Schedules Direct is working for me now.

I'm not really sure what I did -  a bit of tidying up of the various config
files and xml captures that I'd generated when I was testing, and when I
re-ran the capture the Sky Arts programmes were there.

Maybe I wasn't running the config file I thought I was, or there could have
been a cacheing issue  - or perhaps I just needed to believe?

Anyway, thanks all for the help
