[mythtv-users] UK Freeview - Over a hundred conflicting channels

I find the easiest way is to find out the multiplex frequencies for your
area then remove all the others from the list of transports in the channel

Then delete all channels and do a 'scan all existing transports'

Provided the mux frequencies never change, this should be a once only task.
