Malcolm, thanks for that script. A few comments:
1) The script as supplied is incompatible with the database in 0.15.1
(e.g. the hp_code_rate field is missing, not sure when it was
2) I suspect it will be a long time before someone writes a C++
equivalent to this, and since this sort of thing only needs
to be done in the setup program, it is probably a waste
having it in one of the myth libraries.
How would you feel submitting it (or letting me do the same)
for inclusion in the contrib directory?
3) Something I have noticed about the linuxtv-dvb-apps scan program
is that it outputs some extra stuff to stdout (ProviderID?)
that is not written to a tzap format output file.
I was thinking that adding another output format to the
scan program for MythTV (maybe raw SQL INSERT statements)
might be a better way forward than improving your script?
