You have to update these scripts to suit your tastes and deal with
changes since they were posted.
You may also want to look at
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Database_editing_script which is a
slightly different variation I wrote - it sets XMLTV ids etc as well.
Not sure about the multiple channels though - I've only got freeview,
not freesat. If you can work out what's-what, then you may have to
adapt the script again to exclude channels on certain transports.
Something along the lines of :
delete from channels where callsign='something' and transport='something else';
Or you may have to join the channel and transport tables, so you can
delete based on certain transport characteristics
(frequency/band/polarisation/whatever). Something along the lines of
(but bear in mind my SQL is rather rusty, and I learned a different
delete from channels
and exists (select * from transport
and <some other conditions here>);
