Re: Proper way to add new channels in scan

I had a major play in this area last month when my area had it's part of
the UK digital switchover (all analogue turned off).
I personally found the <ignore> options always did nothing (0.24-fixes).
At least, nothing I noticed!
That said, I began to use a modified version of a script I found on the
MythTV wiki that dumps my custom settings for DVB channels (like XMLTVID,
comm-flagging, channel number, etc.) out of the SQL to a file, keyed on the
OTA channel callsign.
Then I delete all DVB channels, rescan [existing transports], and
re-import the custom settings. If I think there's more than one channel's
worth of changes, that's what I'll do.
You then just have to re-fetch guide data, as I think they're held by
[mostly arbitrary] chanid. *That* said, using this method gives me ptryy
much the same chanids for each channel as before, so last time I did it the
guide data remained valid.
You'll see the fields I care about being stored.
(I've since modified my local copy to renumber any new channels out of
the way (+10000) of my satellite box, which effectively lays claim to
100-999. Our interesting DVB is mostly 1-99 at the moment.)
