I'm guessing here (vanilla Freesat EPG and XMLTV in my DVB-T/S/Virgin
setup) but it's probably either for the small number of users who
record the encrypted Sky channels via DVB-S/S2 with their viewing
card, or for the larger number of users who record the analog signal
from their STB and don't want to use the tv_grab_uk_rt data from XMLTV
for one reason on another (either because it's not integrated into
MythTV, or because there are channels that are unsupported on uk_rt
that they want listings for).

I've created lineups mappings for XMLTV for Freeview and Freesat based
on their service IDs and transmitted names, but have so far ignored
mapping the encrypted Sky channels to XMLTV IDs.

I am also working on automated channel numbering mappings for Virgin
TVSky/Freeview/Freesat based on the EPG slot numbers which should
improve things for uk_rt users who grab analog video from their STB.
