Hi Martin,

when I scan only a couple of satellites (Astra1+2, Hotbird) I end up
with a good few hundred unencrypted channels from many countries. 
Because the EPG becomes unuseable with that many channels, I create a
couple of channel groups - English, German+Austrian and Swiss TV.  The
English group I'd like to order BBC1-4, ITV-1.4, interspersed with the
+1 channels, then probably followed by the rest in some sort of logical
order. Something similar for the German, the Swiss I would like to
organize by area+language. 

I've spotted some postings where people achieve this by altering
the "channels" table, but as I anticipate clients with different
preferences, I was hoping to make this client specific.
