Lots of things are possible-- but what's not possible right now is for
us to scrape proprietary data without permission.  If SiliconDust ever
follows through putting out an API, then that might be something we
could talk about.

Back on topic, we're working on the web setup rewrite and I have been
working on the channel editor.  I think it's already a lot more usable
and foolproof, but I have a few ideas of how we might make a lot of
this more easy to do.  Specifically, I have an idea for a "channels
palette" where all the channels from the listings source are pulled in
and presented in a context menu, and during scan/channel edit, you can
see a momentary screenshot of that channel.  You'd look at the
screenshot, right click or open the palette/drawer, find The Disney
Channel, and all the relevant fields are populated for you with no
manual editing.

This is not final product stuff, but you can see the current state of
things in the channel editor which I wrote over the weekend:


A long way from where I want it to be, but it's a start.  I also hope
to use have a similarly simple approach to icon choosing.
