#5377: mythtv-setup should recommend running mythfilldatabase --manual --only-

     Type:  defect           |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor            |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythtv           |     Version:  0.21   
 Severity:  medium           |     Mlocked:  0      
 After creating an xmltv Video Source, mythtv-setup tells me I will need to
 run 'mythfilldatabase --manual'. However when I do so, I have to provide
 the channel information multiple times. More precisely:
  - the first time I have to provide the channel id, channel name etc for
 each of the 29 channels. This is as expected.
  - however then I have to type Enter through the pre-filled data 8 more
 times as mythfilldatabase retrieves data for the next eight days.

 This second step of typing enter over and over again (with pauses while
 the data gets downloaded) can be avoided by adding the '--only-update-
 channels' option. This makes the setup quite a bit simpler already so
 mythtv-setup should suggest using it.

 Using the Debian packages:
 libmyth-0.21                                            0.21-0.13
 mythtv-backend                                          0.21-0.13
 mythtv-common                                           0.21-0.13
 mythtv-database                                         0.21-0.13
 mythtv-frontend                                         0.21-0.13
