It's actually really straightforward. I already have the script working
and will share it here. I plan on running it nightly. Should save me
some broken recordings in the future.
The only feature it doesn't have at the moment is to automatically add
records to dtv_multiplex if frequencies are missing. That is, if a
virtual channel moves to a physical channel you've never used before,
you'll have to manually add the dtv_multiplex record before my script
I suppose I could just have the script copy another record from the same
sourceid and just change the frequency field. That's what I've done on
my system and it works. There is a *whole* lot of stuff in there that I
have no idea what it does.
Could one of the Myth wizards here give me a little guidance on
dtv_multiplex? Is copying an existing record safe?
