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 
will work.

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?
