[mythtv-users] New MBE Rescan ClearQAM

Greetings all,

  I am setting up a new MBE (0.21-fixes from JYA for now). My cable 
provider has added a few new channels available as QAM and I wanted to 
be able to record from them. I used mythconverg_backup.pl to grab a copy 
of my live DB. I then added it into my new system.

  Next I ran mythtv-setup and deleted all channels from my DigitalCable 
lineup. I then let Myth scan for channels. It found all the channels I 
expected. I then edited each channel and added the callsign, xmltvid, 
and channel number.

  I then started mythfrontend and my NBC and CBS channels appeared to 
have the wrong listing data. A run of mythfilldatabase --refresh-today 
seemed to sort that out.

  The problem is that now I have scheduled recordings on both NBC and 
CBS and they record on the wrong channel. I looked in the old database 
and the channel.chanid fields are opposite what the new db has. Is there 
any easy way to fix this?
