#3011: importing channels.conf does not work since revision 11682

 Importing the channels.conf file generated by dvbscan tools does not work
 In the logging the message is listed that channels are imported, but none
 of them  are stored in the database for some unclear reason. No error-
 message is given at all. Channels are just all ignored, not even 'skipped'
 mesages are displayed in the setup.
 After this error of importing automaticly the scanner is started, tuning
 for channels, but it cannot lock anything.

 To me, it seems a different problem that ticket #2830. The channel.conf
 files are generated as is, by dvbscan tooling. And even if the format is
 invalid and this quirky behaviour is by design, the setup tool should
 mention what is incorrect in the channels.conf files, at least in the
 logfiles. But: before revision 11682 my channel.conf files, work, and from
 11682 and on it they do not, so I do NOT believe the channel.conf files
 are wrong.

 I use DVB-S, on the Astra 1, 2 and Hotbird satellites. I live in the
 Netherlands. (MPEG2)

 Attached I have put my channels.conf files (generated by dvbscan) and a
 logfile of mythtv-setup.
