[mythtv-users] scte65scan and Schedules Direct XMLID's

I just recently fiddled around with the scte65scan ( 
http://scte65scan.sourceforge.net/ )

and got it working with my hdhomerun - ./scte65scan -H FFFFFFFF -f 3 -p 
us-Cable-Standard-center-frequencies-QAM256 > vct.sql

Looking in that sql command set though, I figure its removing all my 
currently channels, adding in the ones it's found - with callsigns and 
channel numbers (fabulous!). This is great and saves me hours of work I 
was doing previously, what with manually tuning to a channel, figuring 
out what it is and then manually checking Schedules Direct for its 
callsign, XMLID and manually editing the channel info.

And there lies my rub : If I'm correct - this script is going to wipe 
out all my XMLID info for the channels I've manually created, correct?  
And this script has no way of putting them back, so I have to 
re-manually-enter the XMLID for my guide data?
