He never said, "Delete all video sources."  Channels have /nothing/ to
do with capture cards.

(And, really, 2-3 minutes is a /very/ conservative estimate for
re-creating capture cards.  I could delete all video sources and all
capture cards, re-create video sources, re-scan channels, re-create
capture cards, and re-connect inputs in 2-3 minutes.  Then, it would
take a couple of minutes to fix xmltvid's after the rest is
done--though, since I've done it once before, I'd pull that from a backup.)
