I tried the Robert K program on my test machine. I am using Ubuntu 16.04
and Mythtv 0.28. There were multiple issues, see the ticket that I
raised below.


Perhaps it does not work because php5 no longer exists and it has
problems with php7.
Maybe it does not work with 0.28?

This was originally denigrated by the developers as it was directly
updating the database.

If I remember correctly it would add all channels to your database
regardless of whether you need them, and I seem to remember would reset
all of the priority settings on the channels. I use the priority
settings, so that would be no good.
