For channels inserted through a scan, you may need to do the xmltvid 
editing first--depending on how much info Myth was able to pick up from 
the scan.  If there's not enough info in the scanned channels to 
associate the channels with listings data, you have to manually do the 
xmltvid's first or you'll make a mess.

Unfortunately, it's hard to tell if you have enough info in the scanned 
channels until you've run mythfilldatabase and found it didn't do the 
right thing.  :)
