IMHO if the core developers are confused by
channel/frequency/callsign/multiplexes/multiple programming stream feeds
then what hope is there for us mere mortals.
being from europe and not using callsigns (well not for the last 50 odd
years or so) and having multiple methods for receiving that same
programming, how should i/we set things up.
as a concrete example:
i have three different feeds of BBC1 (Northern Ireland)
i have a sky digibox
i have two other STB which can receive it because it is free to air
i have two DVB-S cards
at the moment i have them set up as separate entries in the EPG (51, 143
should they all have the same "number" in the EPG?
i don't even know what to call this number. is it a channel number or what?
i'm very confused.
