I didn't see two copies of the channels in the mux, I saw two identical copies of the channels in the database. The pids and sids were the same so I believe they were duplicates from MythTV scanning not duplicates in the transmission.

I've seen the same when the BBC changed their transmission mode before and also Ch4 HD, pretty sure MythTV isn't deleting the old channels when adding the new in this instance, yes I asked the scanner to update channels and no other channels were similarly affected.

I was hoping to see some new pids in there already but I guess the Beeb are being cautious and changing things one step at a time, they have been caught out many times before.
