Hi Ray,

Thanks for your post.  You used the phrase, "edit the channel numbers".
To be clear, you really mean the Channel Number field on the screen
where an individual channel can be edited?  I tried that, but I didn't know
what I was doing - and got nowhere, or course.

Now, I'm going to try entering the XMLTV ID in the field near the 
bottom of that screen and see if mythfilldatabase will retrieve the
correct data.

If you really edited the Channel Number field, where did you find the
value(s) to put in there?
