Thanks for this. I haven't signed up for the SD forum yet, but if anyone reading this has already signed up, you could mention that this seems to be affecting Channel 5+1 (77749) and Channel 5+24 (97294) too.

At least 5USA and 5STAR aren't affected, so whatever the problem is, at least it presumably isn't some sort of contractual dispute.

For the time being, I have blanked the xmltvids and ticked useonairguide for those channels, although I'm not seeing any listings from EIT yet (but am on some other channels still using EIT so I know EIT is working in general). Is one supposed to remove all the "To Be Announced" listings before EIT will overwrite?
