[mythtv] [Q]: how does mythtv "decides" if a channel (DVB-S) is encrypted?

Hi all,
I have some troubles with my DVB-S setup: most channels are encrypted 
here but a few ones are not. One of these is flagged as encrypted in the 
DVB tables which is bad. I used mythtv-setup with decryption test and it 
says encryption status unknown which is probably caused by the fact that 
it tries to decrypt it whereas it is not encrypted.
But this channel was working before (after a fresh transports scan) so 
somehow myth does update the encryption status somehow I guess.
In brief: where should I try to put a config option asking myth to 
PERMANENTLY consider the channel as a clear one regardless of the dvb 
tables flag?
My guess would be to put this in the channel editor.
