#2695: Channel Scanner cleanup

Comment (by anonymous):

 I have some problems concerning the scanner too: In my case mythtv is not
 able to find the some channels even if they were first imported correctly
 from a channels.conf file (and after that deleted so that mythtv can do
 the scanning again to make EPG working on these channels): A scan on all
 known transponders does not give some "special" channles: The "Premiere
 Direkt" (and other pay per view) channels are missing.

 Maybe there is a workaround to fix the database manualy to get EPG working
 with these few imported channels which the mythtv scanner does not find. I
 looked into the mythconverg database and found that the cause for the
 missing EPG maybe lies in the table "dtv_multiplex". For channels which
 are impoted from a channels.conf file, the "transportid" and "netwokid" in
 the corresponding entry of the "dtv_multiplex" seems to be alway NULL in
 comparison to the entries that were made when mythtv does the scanning.

 Is it possible to fix the EPG on theses channels by fixing this table? Or
 which other information is missing in the database to get EPG working? And
 how can this be fixed by hand?
