You do have a DVB-S card? As ITV HD is only broadcast via the FreeSat
I did a tuned scan within mythtv-setup and it was picked up fine.
The ITV HD patches are included in the latest updates of trunk so no
patching is required.
EIT and XMLTV works for me, using the SQL script posted previously I
update all my XMLTV ID's, get the listings data from radio times and EIT
updates the data with any over the air changes to schedule.
Robert's theme "Graphite" works better than Terra for me.
