I haven't tried the tv_grab_zz_sdjson patch as yet because apparently
right now the server is responding with code 3000, "Server offline for
maintenance". Not sure what that's all about.

Honestly with the reports of schedules getting reported for incorrect
channels etc, I frankly terrified to even try it. So you had no such
issues? I wonder why some would have such horrible issues and others

Question: In your existing xmltv config file, what do you have for the
"channel-id-format" up at the top? Mine has channel-id-format=mythtv
which assumes that the channels get reported with just the numeric
xmltv ids.
