I seemed to have ended up with that :-) I admit I have always been a little
confused with the concept of a video source. The only thing it appeared to
define was a source of program listing information. Since both my analog and
digital cards used the same program listing source I only had one video
source defined.

It looks like I have somehow ended up with a configuration that is not
allowed. Do I really now have to have my EPG cluttered up with duplicate
channels :-(

To save me looking through the code (I could not find an obvious equality
test in the channel class), can anyone tell me what exactly does myth need
to decide that two entries in the channel table are actually the same
channel? Is it channel number, callsign and name as mentioned above.
