RadioTimes xmltv update (1 Viewer)

So, the radiotimes channel list supplied with MediaPortal was a bit out of date so I wrote a perl script that I run under cygwin to download the latest channel list from and creates a new xml file for me in the same format as the old one. Yes I know I should have used an XML module but I just wanted a quick and dirty solution.

So everything works fine and I have added the new channels. The only thing is, Channel4 and Channel4+1 don't work so I was wondering how MP relates the channel ID with the channel program download. For example does it download from something like: where 132 is the channel number? I'm just trying to figure out how to debug this.

Perl script and result file are attached for reference.
