Yep, make sense, so now we are back to a big hard to maintain db again

I like Stuarts idea though that it's made available online!  Perhaps we 
could use a page on the wiki to make it easy to maintain and have some 
code download and suck off the page and parse it?

I wonder if the wiki owner would be happy with us doing this?  Also what 
about the issue of defacements of that page to screw up the import...?  
Serious enough to be an issue?

Otherwise some other easy to maintain web app could be used.  Just need 
the fields you describe plus country and DVB-type I guess?
