Hi Ben,

    I have DVB-T and DVB-S and just edited the channel numbers/callsigns
and names of the satellite channels to match my DVB-T channels where
necessary. The Programme Guide displays them all in the same table.
Though you will need to configure different listings sources for each
(I pointed both sources at radio times).
