[mythtv-users] make dvb and non dvb grabbers play nice

Hello, another EPG-related problem. I've one DVB-S card with two
inputs (two LNBs, one Astra 19, the other Astra 28). I've scanned
them in mythtv-setup, and then modified each channel's callsign,
channelnumber and xmltvid manually, in the screen provided.
In the database table "channel", this looks like this:
channum 3 <== modified by me
callsign 3sat <== modified by me
xmltvid C3sat.de <== modified by me
I'm using tv_grab_de_tvtoday and tv_grab_uk_rt in favour over
tv_dvb_grab because they seem richer both in the number of days and
the information for each programme provided.
The xmltvid values are taken from the output of a tv_grab_de_tvtoday
and uk_rt, respectively. My hunch was that the mythfilldatabase will
try to find channels which have xmltvids it knows about, and associate
these channels with the programmes it's importing. However, after
having run mythfilldatabase, I find another line in the channel
table, like this:
chanid 1138 <== where does this value come from?
How does mythfilldatabase work? And how can I "merge" these two
channels (automatically, of course, I wouldn't want to do it manually
for each mythfilldatabase run) into one?
