That's great new, Nick! Just two days ago I was forced to re-run the entire
Freeview scan again because my finger slipped... not fun.
A note you may wish to consider with respect to regional variations. I get my
service from the Hannington transmitter, I'm about 8 miles North from there, in
postcode RG14. I have these two lines in my Freeview.xmltv for ITV1:
Anybody spot the problem? Actually it's /worse/, since I don't get either of
those, it's Meridian around here.
What I'm saying is that the postcode-region mapping is... inexact. I know you
rely on users to provide you with better data, how can we help?
