I'm getting there; I cobbled together a perl script recently that takes
the RT XMLTV grabber data (for xmltvids), scrapes the digitialspy website's
list of Sky channels, then tried to match these up, giving a tally of Sky
channel <-> xmltvid.
The idea then is to go through the d/b looknig for xmltvids in this list
that have a channum+freqid setting that doesn't match.
It's sort of getting there, I'll share what I have so far soon. I have
had to ignore certain ones (e.g,. BBC1/2/ITV) where the actual sky broadcast
is regionalised (e.g., BBC1-SE) andso everyone will have a diff. xmltvid
(matching their region), and also ones that RT doesn't list.
I guess the 'ideal' solution is for this sort of thing to be wrapped up
into the xmltv grabbers somehow, but that would require someone to maintain
a hadr-list of sky channel <-> xmltvid.
