That error message normally means that the .xml file is empty or just
has the initial header lines - the EPG download failed.  I am not sure
where the Schedules Direct grabbers put the file, but if it has not
been automatically deleted, you should be able to find it, if you have
the mlocate package installed.  Run "sudo updatedb" to scan all drives
for new files, and when that finishes, run "locate *.xml" and you
should see it listed somewhere.
