Thaks for that.  I was asking more generally in terms of your channel
numbering strategy for a combined DVB-T and DVB-s(2) system in the UK.

Basically I'm looking to improve WAF by not showing multiple copies of the
BBC channels in the mythweb listing (we use our android tablet to setup
most recordings).

Also I'd prefer not to show all the encrypted channels etc.

And where there is overlap between freeview and satellite channels the
guide data is sometimes subtly different causing dupicate recordings from
the two sources.

For me this i sthe last annoying thing i cant get sorted without huge
manual work sorting out the satellite channels after a scan.  But, as I'm
sure you are aware the channnels tend to move about a bit on 28.2E and
therefore a rescan is required from time to time.

Any advice greatly received!
