[mythtv-users] DVB-T rescan question

   I've got my DVB-T working swimmingly now.  I did have to do a re-scan and 
set my channels up again;  I'd like top know what aspect of the channels is 
used by mythtv-setup's scanning feature to determine that it's already got it.

   E.g., I have "BBC ONE" on channum 1, I forget it's DVB-T callsign.  When 
I do a re-scan, it knows I've already got BBC 1 & just updates it.  What 
does it use to do this (i.e., what can I change and still allow rescan to 
work) - callsign, channum, etc.?

   To prevent clashes with my Sky box, I've renumbered the >100 channums up 
out of the way.  Will a rescan re-insert them?
