       I want to switch to the the OzTivo http://www.tvguide.org.au/
utilizing the their recommended tv_grab_au_reg script.  I have already
downloaded the scrip & setup a config file as per instructions.  I have
done a test download of the data I want to a tmp file, and I get what I
expect to see. 
However, the thing I not clear about is how the tv_grab_au_req Display
name, localname  relates to the database channum. Before I go brazenly
off into mythtv-setup I want to make sure that I am not going to break
my existing database.
How exactly do I go about the next step?  When I change to
tv_grab_au_reg, can I set the localname to something that will help for
when I move to NSW and re-tune the DVB channels.
