On any new recording since the update I noticed that TV stations listed as, i.e. WRALDT 5.1 (WRAL-DT).  But on recordings done prior to the update they all have the TV stations listed as, i.e. #1051#1051. Not a big deal, because those recorded shows will eventually get watched and deleted.

Before I was using XMLTV via the same grabber, tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite also. The version is newer. All the stations are the same as before and none have changed their frequency.  So I was surprised it had any affect at all.

Is this something that could be edited on the old recordings? Or is it too big a headache to mess with?
