This will break grabbing channel icons for any user who also has
analogue/FreeView/cable video sources which get their listings data
from the uk_rt grabber.

tv_grab_uk_rt doesn't fetch the logos, it simply includes an icon
element in the XML file with the location of an icon (if available)
for each channel. mythfilldatabase (MFDB) is responsible for actually
using this information to download the icons and add the information
to the database, and this is where icon handling should be and is
controlled. Using the --update option with MFDB stops both the
downloading of icons and the adding of new channels found in the XMLTV
data not present in the MythTV database.
