Yes I know - But since I made thoose changes in Mythweb - so no 
conflicting channels are there now.
Since I'm grabbing the listingdata from a outside provider (www.ontv.dk) 
and then put the data into MythTV.
Just getting the listing data in a XML file - and adding it to MythTV by 

mythfilldatabase --update --file 1 <FILENAME>    puts data in for Listing 1
mythfilldatabase --update --file 4 <FILENAME>    puts data in for Listing 4

So not needing the data from the satelite - since I've got better 
updated data from OnTV

I've thinked about setting it up this way - but this will take many 
options away from me - while seeing different channels all over the house!
Got 4 frontends running -. the reason for having so many tuners and 
mixing the setup this way. So setting 1source pr tuner - I'll getting a 
couple of SBE for running all those cards with the same recording 
options as I got now !
It was allso to hear others meaning about how to set this up!
