Just moved to Mythtv from a dreambox and struggling a bit. I've got 3 
dishes with a Diseqc switch. Now having Hotbird, Nilesat and Pan7/10 i 
have quite a few hundred channels (in the range of 1000 including 
audio), of which i only watch or browse thru 50 or so. My kids another 
10, and the wife a smaller set.

Here's the problem. With the dreambox you could set up bouquets 
(corresponding in my case to each member of the family) but i can't see 
how to do this.

I can delete all my unwanted channels in myth, but i still end up with 
~100 channels that we're watching/flicking thru. With Mythtv this is a 
extremely tedious task going thru all the channels to find the one i 
want. So, i know i can add a xml menu to show "kids", "wife" and "my" 
WatchTV channels, but how do i associate a ste of channels to be 
browseable for each person ?

Is this possible or am i asking too much ? Someone out there must have a 
similar requirement and asked the same question before ?

Thanks for any advise
