#3969: Grabber for Finnish ch icons and setting of xmltvid fields

 Priority:  minor        |   Milestone:  unknown

 I would like to add a function into contrib directory, if possible. It's
 is like Justin's grabukicons, thanks for him, but does also setting of
 local xmltv grabber ids. I got frustrated since tuning channels is PITA
 here. If you need to do it often. Also it's complicated enough for the
 first time, since here you need to jump into command line in middle of
 tuning to answer mythfilldatabase questions. This script allows a shortcut
 for experienced users.

 The script reads the local channel info from lookup.txt. That file
 currently contains all HTV Helsinki channels with icons and xmltvids. All
 I could find. The script first downloads all icons into user specified
 directory. Then it sets the paths into DB. This comes from Justins script.
 The addition is that the script then fills xmltvids into DB and finally
 prints out videosource.xmltv file for the user. This all is done only for
 the channels existing in users channel table.

 I have this script in my mythtv-trunk/mythtv/contrib/fi_icons_xmltvids
 I attach the script and the lookup.txt here. Hopefully someone could
 commit it in.

 At least it's stored publicly for my friends waiting for it :)

 PS. I don't know perl, so bare with the script. I didn't even know how to
 cut lines at 80 ;)
