This is strange as I have been using what came out of dvb-utils scan for 
ages and nothing has changed. Channel 7, or Prime in my case, has been 
happily ticking along for 2 years on various Myth versions without 
changing anything. Infact, when I do a scan in Myth everything gets 
screwed up so the channels.conf of old is the only way to fix it.
