Hi All,

Just want to make sure that I'm not duplicating anyone else's work
before I start working on this.

I have three different capture cards (analog, digital SD and digital HD)
which receive overlapping channels. Both digital cards receive the all
the channels the analog card does plus some extras and the HD card
receives the same as the SD card but with some more extras (HD!). I've
set it up so that I get an xmltv feed (actually, I take the feed once
and then create 3 feeds from that using perl) for each individual type
and the card is linked to the appropiate feed. This means that I have
three copies of each of the 5 channels we receive on analog and two
copies of the overlapping digital only channels in the tv guide.

What I did was set the channels up to have the same channum and
callsign. Now the channels only show up once in the tv guide, but I have
"lost" the coloured box around the program in mythweb to let me know if
it's going to be recorded or not.

To make a long story short, what I'm planning on doing is modifying
mythweb so that it will display the coloured border if the show is set
up on any of the "linked" channels instead of the first one.

Has anyone already done this? Or is there a better place to do it?
