I don't see the database definition for this table...what is in it?  If it
is only for ordering of channels, why not add an order column to the channel
table instead?

Could you send a unified diff of your mythweb changes, rather than a tarball
of the whole tree?

This should probably go to the xmltv development list; mythtv does not (and
likely will not) include XMLTV.

I haven't tried this, but it looks like it writes out a temporary xmltv
config which only contains the channel list...don't you need the provider ID
as well?

It's probably better to submit patches against CVS, since they will be much
easier to merge.

Though, some people are crazy and do it by hand. :-)
