What about matching against station name field?  Do these stay fairly 
static on HD?  They seem fairly constant and unique for DVB here?  I 
think it would be maintainable to have a name/table/xmltvid/icon table?

Your point about how unmaintainable the table is, is also a reason for 
doing it... Otherwise if we are expecting *every* user to do the same 
mapping process then this is a serious amount of wasted effort worldwide...

If it's feasible and straightforward lets at least consider it for the 
locations where it works.  I think this should work OK for the UK - have 
to think a little about regional variations, but it would do as an 
initial setup script
