I feel you pain :) especially if you forget to "save" the channels table
in mythweb and then have to do it all over again !

Just out of interest Robert do you receive ITV HD ? I'm going to reimport
all my satellite channels but at the moment 10510 appears to be ITV 4+1 on
my box ?!?!

I'm also looking at the ITV HD patch that is in trac but think I can only
apply that to trunk? - http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5388.

PS. Nick's email looks promising RE: updating the XMLTV grabber so that it
pulls down the channel numbers...
