preset patch and the mythchannel patch. I want to add my 0.02 Euro to the

To Isaac: we, european users, need the preset patch. As you can see from the
translation arriving, there are a lots of interest in mythtv also in the old

channels untuneable due to letters insted of number in the frequency table.

You can use the TV object, like in the manualbox.cpp. yes, it is slow, but
it is better to tune the channel using the object you'll use to watch it.

I hope to see the preset patch and the mythchannel committed soon.
