As I set about above:

1. Scan for channels.
2. Select auto channel arrange
3. Select country
4. Select region
5. Channels ordered.

If you don't select auto channel arrange, then it works as normal, nothing
is done.

As I see it in, in the UK at least, there are only a few ways you would want
to set your channel numbers.

The process within MythTV is somewhat lacking here, lots of people are using
custom scripts or seeking out these scripts. If within MythTV a user could
select one of these scripts it would reduce the complexity of setting up

I also think that a optional standard for channel arranging could help focus
the effort that goes into maintaining these lists across many countries.
