I use an HDHomerun Cable Card network tuner off of Comcast with 
Schedules Direcct Data Direct Format. I'm running a few week old version 
of the Myth trunk, which I haven't been updating since the trunk is 
eliminating Data Direct sometime soon (if it hasn't already).

So I'm looking for the easiest way to convert to XMLTV on Schedules 
Direct. I've run Myth for years, and don't want to lose any of the 
history, rules, etc.

I have a lot of channels, and there are many chanids not in the 
sourceid-chanum format. I don't think deleting and adding is the right 

I presume I need to use the method editing the xmtltvid from nnnnn to 

The suggestion of using the mythweb channel editor seems impractical 
given how many channels there are. I would expect it would make more 
sense to run a script against the channel table directly. I guess I 
could write the sql, but it would seem that others must have done this 

Am I on the right track?
