I don't know what channel that is but if it's in the Sky or Freeview (satellite) broadcast then it's probably available.

Just out of curiosity hads - are you aware that listings for all the Freeview channels are already available in XML format from the Freeview site? This is the data that they use for their online EPG and also includes the HD flag which is nice - it is just a shame that when converting these files to xmltv this is lost.

Yeah thanks, I have seen the XML files that the guide there uses. When I last looked at it there wasn't a difference in the data available there and what was available from the EIT stream. I'll possibly take a look at writing another grabber which uses this data at some stage.

Oh BTW, the XMLTV file format includes a HDTV tag, mythtv uses it but I'm not sure if any other software does.

CTV8 (Chinese TV) is only available on Freeview HD. And it is a very new addition to the list of channels on Freeview HD.

hads, just thought I would report a minor glitch in the EPG today.  On TV3 at 4:30 pm was listed as Neighbours, the Aussie soap, but it was in fact Everybody Loves Raymond.  The eposide of Raymond was called Neighbours.  Was this a problem with the Sky EPG or what?
