Ahhh, I left it, watching to see it was doing something in the b/g,
and it's sprung into life.

Couple of things that hit me, although I'm about to call it a day so
I'll have to follow up tomorrow.

Now Playing is saying Unknown for all items beside the channel name..
C4 has some data until 12.45am so should it pick that up? Oh, hang on,
that'll be for today, not yesterday. My error. I'll see how it updates

BTW, when it does the refresh every minute any selection in the Now
Playing list of channels is lost. So I was viewing C4 there, and it's
gone back to base_mtv.

This has probably already been suggested. How about sending the data
on changes with less regular dumps of all information rather than once
a minute? That's a stack of data coming out of there!
