The latter.  I only want to do the renumbering for a bit of WAF - so the missus
can select the DVB channel on the remote using the channel number in the Radio
Times.  I was hoping not to have to rescan after the pain I've been through
before setting the channels up - I was hoping someone might have a list of the
changed channel ids or better yet a chunk of SQL to remap them in the database :)

Are there any new channels coming online as part of this change, or is it just a
renumbering to allow more channels in the future?  I still don't really see
*why* they had to go and change the existing ones...
