Sorry for xpost if its not approriate.
Following the recent re-shuffle of PIDs in the UK on Freeview, I got fed up manually setting up channels.
I have written a PHP script which uses dvbscan (part of the LinuxTV tools) to dump out the channel list, and populate the channel tables in MythTV.
It populates channel, dvb_channel, and dvb_pids automatically.
At the moment, you have to change one line to indicate the starting frequency for your local transmitter. LinuxTV is supplied with a list of transmitters and their frequencies.
It uses the ServiceID as the chanID in mythtv (as I believe these stay constant)
It also 'fixes up' the radio channels by assigning a dummy video PID from the same MUX, so they work in MythTV.
It outputs a SQL script, which you can pipe to mysql to do the setup.
Can I contribute this to mythtv? i also wanted to contribute my auto-archive script (which only works for DVB recordings) as well. Is is possible to have partial CVS access for my tools? If not, I will throw together a web page with them on.
