It is a bit hard to find. On the front oztivo Twiki page at
http://minnie.tuhs.org/twiki/bin/view, down the bottom-left there is a
link called "TWiki Registration". Follow it to find the registration
page. I've mentioned to the web site folks there that it's a bit tto
difficult for people to find.

Yes - that's certainly do-able.

Would be nice but I don't have the time to do it at the moment. It
would be easy enough if it was just a matter of checking if the file
contains listings or not, but the usual problem is that it contains
errors in the listings which is much harder to trap.

It can be done - go for it! I would do it by defining a variable for
each channel's new XMLTVID and using that in the sed commands. Might
to be tricky to do it with just a FORMAT variable as the XMLTVIDs I
have used don't really conform to any fixed rules.
