When configuring xmltv by hand for the Schedules Direct grabber you get the
option to select a Lineup or a group of channels.

I've never selected a Lineup, but I assume it's a preset group of channels
based on your specified location.

If that works then it's much easier than individually selected channels by
hand which, as Geoff says, is very tedious.

Sounds like maybe that Lineup isn't working for you though.
