[mythtv-users] Channel number translation

How can I translate a channel number used in the BE log to one that is 
meaningful to me?

I am getting failed recordings in the log and I want to connect it to a 
channel to see if I can record anything from that channel. They are 
always on channel 3494 and that just does not relate to a real channel. 
I've been though the settings and the SD xml file and can connect the 5 
digit IDs to the real channel numbers but I can't see any 4 digit ones. 
Maybe that is the problem and 3494 doesn't exist? When I get this 
failure I poke through schedule recordings but of course the failed one 
is gone and so far there have not been any upcoming broadcasts of the 
same show. Maybe I need to start keeping a manual log of what is going 
to record on what channel???

This is what I see in the log -

2011-08-09 11:59:47.593 Canceled recording (Recorder Failed): Lara 
Croft: Tomb R
aider: channel 3494 on cardid 12, sourceid 2
2011-08-10 11:30:14.148 Canceled recording (Recorder Failed): Joy Ride: 
channel
3494 on cardid 15, sourceid 2
2011-08-11 16:39:48.068 Canceled recording (Recorder Failed): Back to 
School: ch
annel 3494 on cardid 15, sourceid 2
2011-08-12 20:00:06.200 Canceled recording (Recorder Failed): Back to 
School: ch
annel 3494 on cardid 15, sourceid 2
2011-08-23 08:59:48.263 Canceled recording (Recorder Failed): Click: 
channel 349
4 on cardid 15, sourceid 2

This is 0.23 Mythbuntu 10.04 if that makes a difference. Yes I know, I 
need to upgrade...
