Hi guys,

I recreated all my sources in MythTV (top of trunk)...

labs.zap2it.com was correctly set for the OTA ATSC channels I receive.

1) Created capture card entry.
2) Created video source and chose correct lineup.
3) Set input to video source and ran channel scan.
4) Verified channels in channel editor. XLMID field is blank as newly 
5) Ran mythfilldatabase.

The result:
The XMLID fields of all subchannels had been set to that of the first 
The zap2it lineup shows all my sub channels are disabled except of the 
first subchannel.

I know how to fix it by manually by entering the XMLIDs but it is rather 
user unfriendly.

MythTV knows the virtual channel numbers for each channel... zap2it 
knows the virtual channel numbers for each channel... it should be 
possible to match them.

It would go a long way to making MytTV easier to set up.
