 mythtv-setup: unable to automagically set xmltvid field

 On release 28 I would go through scan for channels to pull in channels
 from my tuner, run a sql script to change channel number n_n to n.n, then
 run  mythfilldatabase --dd-grab-all. At the end of that the xmltvid field
 would have the SchedulesDirect channel id in xmltvid.

 On release 30, mythfilldatabase would complain no grabber set, because of
 the empty xmltvid field/column.

 As a result there are no selections in the program guide.

 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 How reproducible: Always

 Steps to Reproduce:
 1. clean mythtv install
 2. mythtv-setup
 3. Channel Editor
 4. delete all
 5. scan and insert all
 6. pick a channel and note empty xmltvid field

 Using Schedules Direct for TV guide info/source.

 Using Input Connections Fetch channels from listing source did not appear
 to do anything other than complete.

 Using a SiliconDust HDHR-US Tech network tuner.
 Channel numbers come in as n_n. I wrote some sql code to flip the desired
 channels to n.n.

 Workaround for xmltvid was to pull it from a release 28 install
 and fill it in the release 30 database.

 User doing an upgrade will not notice the problem.
