A little status update:
Isaac and I talked about the code changes on IRC and we agreed that I
copy the code, because he doesn't expect any more changes to the general
code. I also changed the names according to his request.
As for storing the settings, Andy's concerns caused me to use a table
specifically for DVB, channel_dvb, which stores the DVB-specific
settings. Hopefully, later a channel_analog and channel_hdtv will
follow. The DVB-specific settings (2) for the capturecard are stored
directly in the capturecard table for now.
I am curious about Richard King's comments, which he promised for end of
this week, IIRC. I seriously hope I don't have to rewrite everything
I am uploading the current state on smaller milestones, they are not
garanteed to work. The last version known to work (as far as it goes) is
21, but that's before the restructuring.
ATM, I am modifing the code to allow for (almost) any number of PIDs per
channel, to support Dolby Digital etc. as well.
If someone wants to write a channel list importer, I haven't looked into
it closely, but it seems there are different formats depending on DVB
type (-S, -T etc.) and program, so it's a bit of a mess it seems. See
e.g. <http://www.dxandy.de>. Maybe we can find or invent an XML format
and then write a Myth importer for that and write converters from
popular formats (e.g. VDR or dbox or whatever) into that XML format. But
that's up to the one writing the importer.
