[mythtv] channel table auto-population

I have same issue in Australia as well. Basically it seems that when a
channel is tuned and there are any channels on that transport stream that
are not in the database they get added.

The problem I have with just setting these channels to invisible is that
just browsing through the channels using the up and down arrows on live TV
will go through these invisible channels as well, there will no guide data
and they are generally just copies of the main channels. Is there any other
way to remove these channels completely? Or will they always re-add because
they are on the same transport stream?
