[mythtv-users] How to delete channels in bulk?

Do you use Datadirect (Zap2it)?   If so all you have to do is login there via the website, modify the channel line up for your source, and you won't
get the excluded channels.  I don't know how this works if you've got a program schedule with programs setup to record already, I deleted my sources
then modified my line up and re-added them.  Once you do that you won't get the unwanted channels again.
